Spellebration Event

GRCC faculty, staff and Trustees attended the Literacy Center of West Michigan’s annual “Bee Dazzling Spellebration” Wednesday night at Thousand Oaks Golf Club. This year’s event – in its 19th year – raised more than $75,000 to benefit its reading programs. Funds from the event will help the center continue serve more individuals in need, including those already on a waiting list for a literacy tutor.

While Grandville, Northview and Lowell also had millages on the ballot, most communities had nothing else on the ballot, which led to low voter turn out.  (More)
