The fantastic Western Wisconsin Technical College Phi Theta Kappa chapter (Beta Nu Chi!) joined the Better World Books team to run a book drive in support of Room to Read in the Spring of 2006. The drive went well and they collected 24 cartons of books. But they had just begun. By coordinating with other college bookstores in the La Crosse area, the group was able to nearly double their Spring 06 output in this Fall drive (the Fall semester is usually trumped by the Spring semester 2 to 1!), collecting an astounding 47 cartons! BWB Fall semester drives ended last week on February 15th and the group notified me they had collected an additional 26 cartons of books- a great start for the Spring semester!
Headed by advisor Linda Duffy, the amazing students of the Beta Nu Chi chapter are going to use their Fall scholarship check to help offset their traveling expenses to the April International Phi Theta Kappa convention; this year being held in Nashville, TN.
Great work Beta Nu Chi!
