KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- WKZO’s morning show host Lori Moore is calling for a team of volunteers to turn out Thursday afternoon at an event to benefit Kalamazoo Public School students.
In effort with KPS and the Communities in Schools of Kalamazoo initiative, Moore began the campaign titled “The Lori Moore Corps” to assemble an “army” of mentors helping to provide positive role models for children who may not have them in their daily lives.
Moore collaborated with KPS Superintendent Michael Rice who says his goal is to make Kalamazoo the “education city”. Rice says, “One on one mentoring is huge, too often what we see are kids who have the drive for success but no role model to guide them on their path to achieving that success.” Rice added, “Just one day a week makes a tremendous difference in a child’s life.”
The Lori Moore Corps informational event is being held Thursday afternoon from 4:30-6:30 at Kalamazoo Central High School in the school’s auditorium. The event is being catered by Qdoba.
