There's an article in my neighborhood newspaper about an event I'm hosting on April 27.
It's part of the Be1 campaign that school board member has spearheaded. The goal is to encourage folks to get become mentors for kids at Kansas City schools.
The event will be at 6:30 p.m. at the Northeast Branch of the Kansas City Library.
It'll be pretty mellow. I'll talk a little about my experience helping the debaters at Central. Hopefully, one of the debaters will be there, and they'll talk about what it's like to have an old freak like me hanging around, trying to help out. I've also invited a teacher from Northeast High and some local social-worker-type people.
I'll post more about it in the coming days. Hope some of you can attend!
