MPTC Hosts Third Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Literacy Week Project

(Beaver Dam) Moraine Park Technical College recently hosted their third annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Literacy Week Project. The effort donates more than 500 culturally responsive books to three local elementary schools. The college began exploring opportunities to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 2019 and developed strong partnerships with Jefferson Elementary in Beaver Dam, Chegwin Elementary in Fond du Lac, and Green Tree Elementary in West Bend.

Moraine Park, which has a campus in Beaver Dam, each year has donated culturally responsive books to the schools’ libraries, and employees of the college have spent time in the classroom or virtually reading books to the students. Moraine Park President Bonnie Baerwald says they value the partnerships cultivated with these three district elementary schools and look forward to working with them to celebrate the important work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for years to come.
