Trayvon RallyLabor Day for a Cause

Tre’ Day, KIPR Radio’s assistant program director, is gearing up for his “2nd Annual Tre Day “Labor of Love” Charity Tennis Tournament and Silent Auction Labor Day Weekend at Little Rock’s Rebsamen Tennis Center. A United States Tennis Association sanctioned event, the weekend will also feature a celebrity party. Proceeds will benefit his scholarship project at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He started the TreDay.com Scholarship Project in 2002 at his alma mater, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, after he met a student from hurricane Katrina who was thinking about dropping out of school. After receiving a Tre’ Day Scholarship , the student decided to stay in school and went on to get a degree in Mass Communications. Tre’ acknowledges he probably would have joined the Air Force, had it not been for scholarships that funded his college education. “I started the scholarship fund because he wanted to return the blessing to this next generation of students” says Tre”. While a full-time student at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Tre’ worked his way up from an internship to a full-time position at KIPR, graduated at the top of his class with a 4.0, and earned the honor of summa cum laude. He has the #1 rated afternoon drive show in Arkansas.
