After calling Wings Stadium "a dim, beery sports barn in Kalamazoo, Mich., is an appropriate home for the K-Wings minor-league hockey team and the Killamazoo Derby Darlins." a new article goes on to explain the Kalamazoo Promise.
The article called "Why these kids get a free ride to college", goes on to explain the history of the program, how "The Promise donors saw how a school district in decline and a weakening economy created a vicious circle", and how "To date, the Kalamazoo Promise has paid out $35 million for postsecondary study for 2,500 students. On average, about $4,200 is spent on each student per semester. Students are responsible for their own room and board."
