Thanks to Advisor Dannielle Curtis, the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences was represented at the Kalamazoo Public Schools MLK Social Justice Book Bowl. Curtis served as a judge at the reading competition for the 6th- 12th grade students who participated. The Book Bowl is designed to encourage the love of reading and to promote literacy in students. “The program exposes young people to different genres of young adult literature that they may not read on their own,” Curtis said.
The annual friendly team competition involves reading, writing and the arts. The Book Bowl began in October and culminated in January with the final competition taking place at Western Michigan University.
“It was great experience to see so many young people, their families and the community coming out to support different activities surrounding diversity and continuing education,” Curtis said.
