MSU’s SNDU chapter hosts Dr. Seuss literacy event in Minot Public Schools

On March 4, Minot State University’s Student North Dakota United chapter and North Dakota United-Retired will host a literacy event throughout the Minot Public School District. The event commemorates Dr. Seuss’ upcoming birthday and Read Across America.

“We plan to give a book to every Minot Public student, grades kindergarten through second,” said McKenna Hodenfield, SNDU public relations officer. “SNDU is honored to be organizing such a large event to promote literacy and the love of reading to community children. This event is possible thanks to the leadership of our officers and fundraising efforts from our SNDU members.”

Minot State SNDU and NDU-Retired members will take the books into classrooms throughout the district March 4. They will read a book to each class and then give a new book to each student to take home.

SNDU is a student club for MSU’s education majors. It strives to provide opportunities for education majors to be involved in and lend services to the Minot education community. Standing officers, in addition to Hodenfield, include Megdalyn Kuske, president; Taylor Foley, vice president; Tiana Olson, secretary/treasurer; and Nikki Egge, student government representative. Dan Conn and Joe Zajdel, both assistant professors of teacher education, are the faculty sponsors. For questions, contact Conn at 858-3267 or
