Great Grown-Up Spelling Bee

Participate in the 15th Annual Great Grown-Up Spelling Bee on Wednesday, Nov. 18 beginning at 6 p.m. with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and cash bar. The spelling bee and cheering competition is from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in the Bernhard Center.

About the event: The Kalamazoo Public Library hosts the Great Grown-up Spelling Bee to benefit Ready to Read, their early childhood literacy program. 100% of the proceeds from this wild and wacky event are used to purchase books for at-risk children in Kalamazoo County. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Bee. The Great Grown-Up Spelling Bee Features Teams of eight adults: two courageous spellers and six outrageous cheerleaders. Spellers compete together in two 60-second rounds of fast paced spelling, while cheerleaders perform one 2 to 3 minute cheer in round one. Prizes are awarded for best spelling, best costumes, most enthusiastic, most creative cheers and audience favorite!

If you are interested email monica.delossantos@wmich.edu.

Donor Appreciation

The theme for the Nov. 5 Mix It Up is “Donor Appreciation” and we are asking for your help in thanking our donors. Take the following steps prior to Thursday’s Mix It Up event.

1: Snap a selfie around the LHC or WMU doing something that relates to your major (playing piano, studying, being artistic, doing research, etc.)
2: Post that photo on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram (any or all!) using #‎bcofLHCDonors‬
3: You’re done! Pat yourself on the back for being a grateful student and helping to thank our donors and hopefully raise more money for future honors students.
