Based on the above pictures found by Jessica  and Mrs. Clay at Google searches, Sindi P. is creating a logo for F-5 Fest with the theme of Cyclones Joining Hands Across Divisions united by working together for a common purpose.  The logo will be used in the creation of flyer, possible t-shirt, and all communication from Casady YAC F-5 Fest.

The Casady Service-Learning Program promoted the May 2nd showing in collaboration with the RunHers Woman's Association because a 6th grade Casady student, Rachel Christie, stated that this movie was something everyone should watch and worked on making flyers and speaking at chapels in the Middle and Upper Division to motivate her peers and older students to attend the May 2 screening and eat dinner at Johnnie's as part of the F-5 Fest Fundraiser honoring Bennett Hanneman.  
Rachel saw the movie after our Assistant Vicar, Father Tim Youmans inspired a few middle school students to attend a March screening.  
Casady Service Learning helped Rachel promote the May 2 showing in the LD, MD, and UD as part of Join Hands Day .  Run Hers Women's Association brought the screening to OKC and promoted the film in their community as well as through mass media. Rachel inspired Casady YAC sophomore chair, Jessica Greene to connect the Thursday movie  to Jessica's Casady YAC (You-nite A Community-our service council) F-5 Fest initiative of Johnnie's Thursday Meals Fundraiser: Activities aiming to build relationships by joining hands across divisions working together for a common purpose.
Jessica could not attend the May 2nd screening because of SPC Tournament in tennis.  The May 2nd screening sold out and more than met the expectations of being inspirational in doing something to help empower girls for a future of self-reliance through education.   

Casady YAC F-5 Fest is currently promoting ANY THURSDAY screening as part of its Thursday Johnnie's Day Meals and a Movie. Screenings need 100 people to purchase tickets to make it.  

 A Couple of Reflective Questions after the movie:
a. What are the common barriers for the girls education?
b. How can we be an instrument of girls' education empowerment?
