On Saturday January 30th and Sunday January 31st, Region V hosted its annual Service Regional Outing (SRO) at UT Dallas. The SRO is a weekend for all the regional SHPE members to get together for two days of community service, networking, and team building. Representatives from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee joined fellow members from several Texas chapters in the event.

Chapter President, Aaron Prokopchuk, was joined by SHPE students from University of North Texas (UNT) volunteering at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Northwest Dallas. Other groups of volunteers helped out at a local animal shelter, homeless shelter, at UTD, and other HFH locations. Additional activities included a tour of Texas Instruments (TI), formal dinner, salsa dancing, and athletics competition. The chapter also contributed funds to become a bronze sponsor for the event earning event recognition and advertisement.
