Kalamazoo College Provost Michael “Mickey” McDonald represented the College and delivered remarks at the recent Communities in Schools of Kalamazoo (CIS) Promise Me campaign public phase kickoff event. Mickey joined Kalamazoo Public Schools Superintendent Michael Rice, Kalamazoo Valley Community College President Marilyn Schlack, Western Michigan University President John Dunn, students, parents, and local leaders who lauded CIS for its effort to help remove the barriers between disadvantaged children and their K-12 success. CIS addresses the academic and basic developmental needs of students by connecting existing community resources to students at school. The Promise Me campaign is nearly halfway to its $4.5 million fundraising goal and is seeking the support of the greater Kalamazoo community in reaching it.
