NEWS: Restored Award

Home, Sweet Home

The wandering award given to the Reading Department returned to the Academic Achievement Center today.

Twelve years ago, the Student Senate gave the award to the department for it's free book exchange program that allowed students to take a book and leave a book (read about it here).

The award could resurrect the book exchange program and include used textbooks.

Roz Bethke, professor of reading for the Academic Achievement Center, offered a cash reward for the award which will be donated to Project Finish, the college's ABE/GED/ESL program.
