r By Shaelyn ChristensenrrOn March 24 from 5 to 7 p.m., Merit Academy will host a Meal for Mtulu. Mtulu is the name of Merit’s sister school in Kenya, Africa, that it adopted seven years ago. Merit Academy is located at 1440 W. Center, Springville.
In 2011, Merit partnered with Kenya Keys, an organization dedicated to educating students in Africa, and Merit students have raised money every year since to help build a school for their young Kenyan friends. Last year at Merit’s dinner fundraiser, a total of $3,018 was raised.
Students at Mtulu are very grateful for the support from Merit. This past year, when one of the Kenya Keys volunteers traveled to Mtulu, the students gathered around and were eager to thank the Merit students for their recent shipment of books.
Come and enjoy a night of entertainment and delicious foreign foods prepared by Chef Sharon Warner and served by Merit’s Interact Club members.
