Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free hand-selected, age-appropriate, high-quality books to children from birth to age five each month. Little Apple Need 2 Read is raising funds to bring this proven early childhood literacy program to Manhattan, Kansas.
The books arrive directly from the publisher and include exclusive questions for families to discuss with their children to aid in reading comprehension and development.
Lauren Howard, a student in the LEAD 405 class, understands the potential this program has for the Manhattan, Kansas, community: “I was surprised by the literacy rate of children in the Manhattan community. I think that this project is really impactful because of how big of a difference getting books in children’s hands could make.”
Together, we can put books into the hands and hearts of children in our community! Will you join us?

The Staley School of Leadership Studies at Kansas State University is seeking students for the Staley School Ambassadors.
Ambassadors must be enrolled in the leadership studies minor or the global food systems leadership secondary major. Ambassadors promote the school to current and prospective students at events such as Admitted Wildcat Days, Discover K-State Days and the Majors, Minors and More fair. They also help faculty and staff share the benefits of leadership studies with the community.
In addition to discussing how the leadership studies minor can benefit students, the Ambassadors publicize upcoming programs and special events, provide continual feedback to faculty and staff, and represent student interests and concerns.
“Staley School Ambassadors have the school and its students’ best interests in mind. We know that what we are learning here is invaluable to the diverse and changing world, just like the mission states,” said Regan Zaremba, student president of the Leadership Studies Ambassadors. “We’re looking for passionate, energetic students for this team to work hard and play hard.”
