Check presented


Proceeds earned during Western Michigan University Cooley Law School’s Auburn Hills campus’ annual charity event held on June 10 were presented to Beyond Basics – Literacy is for Everyone, a child-centered, literacy-focused nonprofit organization that provides one-on-one reading, tutoring and literacy enrichment programs for K-12 students to achieve grade level movement in six to 12 weeks. The $6,000 donation will be used for programs at Walt Whitman Elementary School in Pontiac.
