Crowder, author working to raise funds for Behavior Support Center

(From Crowder College)

Crowder College is working with local author Kent Allen to raise funds for the Behavior Support Center.

Allen is donating 100% of the proceeds of book sales from now through June 30 to the Center.

Saturday, January 30, at 10am the group has sponsored a “Sensory Friendly” viewing of Kung Fu Panda III at the Neosho B&B Theatre.

Sensory Friendly movies have the lights a little brighter and the volume a little lower than normal, which is conducive to autistic children.

Children and their families have been provided free tickets to the show. After a very large response the movie has been moved to a larger theatre.

A crowd of 200 is expected to attend. These students and their family are from area schools. It will provide an opportunity for the children to enjoy a movie more suited for their needs.

Cindy Branscum, Director of Institutional Advancement, Jamie Emery, Director of the BSC, and Allen (Dr. Kent Farnsworth) will be available during the viewing.
