Communities In Schools of Kalamazoo honored the KZOO Spartans for their partnership on Thursday, May 16 at the ‘Champs Award’ ceremony. CIS recognized the KZOO Spartans for their help in the 2012-13 school year.
“Champs is an annual celebration that allows Communities In Schools of Kalamazoo to honor a select few community partners and volunteers who embody the CIS vision – an engaged community where every child fulfills his or her promise – by actively putting forth time, energy, talent, and resources to drive this vision to reality. When it comes to helping our children succeed, Champs reminds us that everyone has a role to play in helping students stay in school and achieve in life.” – Communities In Schools of Kalamazoo
