Shelton State Community College’s Office of Student Engagement concluded their “Rock the Boat” book drive after collecting 480 books for young adults. A statewide service project for community college students, the book drive was a collaborative effort between Shelton State and the Alabama Deans of Student Affairs Association’s 2017 Student Leadership Institute. The Institute chose to encourage world exploration through reading as their service project. Each participating College was asked to sponsor a book drive. Local teachers were contacted to determine areas of student interest, and all donations will be distributed among service area schools. In addition to College-wide participation, assistance was provided by the Literacy Council of West Alabama.
