IPC Volunteers at 2 Million Books Giveaway

Katie, Denise, and Emelia at Hampton Elementary

The Guilford Rotary Club sponsored a "2 Million Books Giveaway" at Hampton Elementary in Greensboro on April 19, 2011. Each of the children at the school received a free book to take home and keep. Denise Bellamy, Director of Study Abroad & Exchanges, Katie Ostrowka, Graduate Assistant at IPC, and Emelia Benson, exchange student from Australian Catholic University studying elementary education, all volunteered to help hand the books out at Hampton.

Hampton has also received learning software from the Rotary Club and is a University Partnership Magnet. The school partners with NC A&T State University, located in Greensboro, which provides tutors, interns, and student mentors for the elementary school students.
