About 60 underprivileged local children got a jump-start to the holidays at the annual HeadStart Christmas party on campus last Sunday. The event – which has taken place annually for about 50 years – brought a lot of smiles to the faces of the kids and members of the Philalethean and Excelsior societies who planned and hosted it.
“We wanted to have a festive celebration for WSOS and families to come to Heidelberg and have a Christmas kickoff,” said EX member and junior Justin See, who was a member of a large planning committee.
