On Tuesday afternoon, Mark Owen of MEEMIC Insurance presented Lapeer Community High School Principal Kevin Walters with a check for $1,800 to fund EBLI training for members of the LCHS staff.

EBLI (Evidence Based Literacy Instruction) is a program designed to individualize literacy instruction for each student. EBLI trains educators so they are able to efficiently infuse instruction into their current curriculum that improves students’ reading and writing proficiency. According to Walters, it is effective for students across all skill levels and can be easily delivered at any grade level in individual, small group and whole class settings.

“We appreciate the generous sponsorship Mark Owen and MEEMIC Insurance has provided our program,” Walters said. “This allows staff from Community High School to participate in training that will improve literacy instruction and impact our students in a positive manner. This is another great example of how powerful the collaboration between school and community can be in impacting the success of our students.”

Lapeer Community Schools wishes to thank Mark Owen and MEEMIC Insurance for their generous gift.
