Teach for America takes on Delta State
Delta State University and the city of Cleveland rolled out the red carpet welcoming participants in the 2012 Teach For America Delta Institute.
On Friday, June 8, eleven host families in Cleveland welcomed Teach For America corps members into their homes for refreshments and a home-cooked meal. Supported by the Cleveland-Bolivar County Chamber of Commerce, the second annual “Delta Hospitality Night” is the brainchild of Jo Parker and Ed Kossman, Jr., who came up with the idea after participating in Teach For America events in the first Delta Institute in 2010. The event gives corps members the opportunity to visit with members of the community and feel more at home in Cleveland.
