Starbuck’s anyone? William Woods University students not only like the brew, but they are impressed with the global responsibility associated with the American coffeemaker.
Members of a student leadership organization, President’s Twenty, are sponsoring an auction to bring Starbuck’s Coffee to campus. The auction, which is open to the public, will be held Wednesday, March 27, in Tucker Dining Hall.
A silent auction will be held from 11:30 a.m. to approximately 12:30 p.m., when a live auction begins. Auction items have been donated by WWU faculty, staff and students. Money raised will provide assistance for The Owl’s Nest, located in the McNutt Campus Center, to serve Starbuck’s Coffee.
Starbucks, a global coffee company and coffeehouse chain based in Seattle, Wash., is the largest coffeehouse company in the world, with 20,891 stores in 62 countries, including 13,279 in the United States. Starbucks is primarily known for selling coffee, but also sells other hot and cold beverages, pastries, sandwiches and other snacks.
President’s Twenty is a collegiate honorary service society whose members serve as the university president’s official ambassadors at university events. Members serve as official honor and color guards at all university convocations, commencements and other activities where needed. They also act as liaisons between the university president and the student body, providing an avenue of communication for each.
