On Friday, October 13th Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity at McNeese State University hosted a “Monster Mash” Halloween dance. All McNeese students were invited to go dance, play games, eat, and mingle with over 50 Special Olympics Louisiana-Southwest Area athletes. 150 students attended the event, dancing and smiling alongside the athletes.
Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity president, Keifer Ackley, said “the amount of love and joy felt in that room was indescribable. Our Special Olympics athletes teach us to love life, be brave, and to love everyone you interact with.”
