HIGH POINT, N.C., May 13, 2019 – The Community Writing Center has announced its full schedule of new adult classes that will be offered this summer beginning May 14 at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, 753 Washington St.
The Community Writing Center, a partnership between High Point University and Mt. Zion Baptist Church, received a $25,000 grant from the High Point Community Foundation for its programming, including these free classes for all adults in the city of High Point.
HPU student Natalie Lucas, a rising senior, Bonner Leader and High Point native, has spent a great deal of her time giving back to the community through her service at the writing center.
“As a Bonner Leader at this site, I have been able to help the children in the High Point community, and in turn devote my time through my college career to be more involved with the community I grew up in,” says Lucas. “With these new classes offered to the adults, I believe it will be another opportunity for me to serve members of High Point’s society.”
The Community Writing Center is an after-school program that engages children from Penn-Griffin Middle School and Kirkman Park Elementary School in reading and writing projects.
The program is co-directed by Dr. Charmaine Cadeau and Dr. Cara Kozma, associate professors of English at HPU.
