Over 200 students and their parents from Whitethorn Primary and Memorial Schools participated in Family Literacy Night at the Wade Center on January 29, 2013. Bluefield State College senior education students organized presentations and interactive activities on multicultural topics ranging from archaeology around the world to multicultural literature.

Jessica McDaniel, Director of the Wade Center emphasized the contribution of the BSC students to the night's success, adding that it was a great opportunity for parents and families to participate in their children's learning.

Becky Peery, principal of Memorial, also said that it was an excellent opportunity for parents, students, BSC future teachers and the community to collaborate. She added that presentations were designed to enrich and benefit students with engaging hands-on activities.

Family Literacy Night has become an annual event in which area schools and BSC senior education students collaborate to increase literacy awareness for students and their families.
