The Honors Student Association hosted its annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 20 between the Academic Building and the Carr-Education Fine Arts Building.

Attendees had the opportunity to engage in activities such as face painting, a ring toss, mural painting, a bean bag toss, cotton candy and popcorn booths and an obstacle course where kids could carry an egg on a spoon. 

“Easter is nostalgic since I am with my family cooking,” Allie Denham, HSA historian, said. “This event is all about family coming together for a good time.”
This year’s Easter Egg Hunt had the largest turnout in 10 years with over 20 volunteers, 350 kids and 575 adults. 

The members of the HSA worked on putting the event together for over two months by stuffing eggs, cutting out ears for crafts and painting plywood. 
“Easter is a great time for people to celebrate spring and enjoy the beautiful weather with their family,” HSA secretary Hannah Marks said. “We want to make sure that we are making a big impact at ASU and San Angelo as a whole.” 

Junior Danielle Hannah discussed the importance of allergy-friendly candy. The candy passed out by the group did not include milk or nuts.  
“Me and another officer, Grace, have many allergies,” Hannah said. “So, we teamed up and decided to use Starburst and Skittles.”
The HSA helps honor students get involved in the community.

“Getting the opportunity to help everyone grow as an officer and leader is rewarding,” HSA president Nathan Blair said. “Hosting great events such as the Easter Egg Hunt and watching the younger students take on big roles is great.”
The HSA also plans to host a Capes and Crowns 5K in the 2019 fall semester.
