Ouachita Baptist University celebrates the 20th anniversary of Tiger Serve Day this Saturday, April 1. Ouachita’s Ben M. Elrod Center for Family and Community coordinates the semiannual event in which hundreds of students, faculty and staff join together to serve members of the community.
This semester’s Tiger Serve Day will embrace its roots with the theme “Into the Streets,” which was the theme for the first Tiger Serve Day in 1997. Ian Cosh, vice president for community and international engagement, began planning the first Tiger Serve Day in 1996. However, plans for the event took an unexpected turn when a category F-4 tornado tore through Arkadelphia on March 1, 1997.
