University of the Ozarks students and officials recently presented a check for $636.89 to the Interfaith Service Network of Clarksville.

The funds were raised during a campus-wide competition sponsored by the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and the Student Life Office. The campus community donated money during voting for the 2013 faculty/staff king and queen for Homecoming 2013. University President Dr. Rick Niece and First Lady Sherée Niece were voted faculty/staff king and queen for 2013.
