Jennifer Hirsch and Ken Delane do poetry at KM Intermediate School.
er give program at KMIS
Jennifer Hirsch and Ken Delano brought
poetry to life Thursday morning at Kings
Mountain Intermediate School.
The duo, part of the Asheville based
Poetry Alive group, visited KMIS and
Burns, Crest and Shelby middle schools. The
program was funded by the schools and the
Cleveland County Arts Council.
Arts council director Shearra Miller called
it a “wonderful partnership between the
schools and arts council.”
Hirsch and Delano used a minimalist
approach, forgoing costumes for street
clothes. Props were limited to two chairs.
This put the emphasis on their dramatic ren-
derings of the poetry.
“I think they're amazing,” Miller said.
The group was formed in 1984 and has
performed in all 50 states and international-
ly. For more information, visit www.poet-

New scholarship fund
formed in Kings Mountain
By ANDIE BRYMER
Staff Writer
Want to help a Kings Mountain youth get
a college education? Got $50 to spare on an
annual basis?
The newly formed Kings Mountain
Scholarship Fund has created a program
enabling individuals to sponsor college stu-
dents.
The group, which organized in January,
wants to raise $8,000 by May. This would
help send eight students to school, organiz-
ers say.
KMSF initially looked at purchasing
books for students. At area community col-
leges books cost between $300 and $500 per
quarter. This often exceeds tuition cost.
“The one thing kids shouldnt have to pay
for is books,” said Ricky Hall, one of the
organizers.
For colleges offering a book rental pro-
gram, the funds go toward tuition.
The group held a fundraising banquet
Saturday night at Central United Methodist
Church. Speakers included Sylvia Bajorek of
Gaston College and Cleveland Red Cross
Director Rick Dancey.
Scholarship applications are available
though the high school guidance office.
Applicants give two references, one from
school and one from the community. They
also write an essay.
A group of senior citizen volunteers will
be given the essays to assign identification
numbers. Then the essays will be given to
another group of seniors to evaluate. They
will select several which will be passed on
to the KMSF board of directors for the final
selection process. Names will be revealed to
the board only after the winners are chosen.
“We think that makes it fair for every-
body,” Hall said.
Volunteers and contributions are needed.
Donations to the non-profit group are tax
exempt. There are no paid staff members.

www.kmscholarship.org or write KMSF, PO
Box 32, Kings Mountain, NC 28086.
