BENEFITING: THE LITERACY COUNCIL OF BUNCOMBE COUNTY
EVENT: 25th Annual Spelling Bee
EVENT DATE: Apr 14, 2016
About a year ago, JB Media Spelling Bee team member Kirsten Campbell became a tutor for the Literacy Council of Buncombe County. Kirsten calls tutoring, "one of the most fulfilling things I’ve ever done." She said of the experience of being a tutor, "At first I was nervous, thinking 'how can I possibly teach English to someone I cannot communicate with … will I just make things worse?' Those fears quickly faded when I realized my student was actually LEARNING. It was/is an amazing feeling. My student calls me her friend. We talk about real-life things and share many laughs. The positive outcomes significantly outweigh any challenges that may come along." Please help us support Kirsten, and her student, and all the other tutors and students in Buncombe County by donating to our team.
