Engage in meaningful conversation with two community leaders that can speak to the importance of civic literacy within our state: Kelly Dyer Fry, Editor and VP of News and Information at The Oklahoman and Kris Steele, Executive Director of TEEM and former Oklahoma House Representative.
The purpose of this event is to raise money to support Newspapers in Education's program offerings. The theme for this year’s luncheon is civic literacy which aligns well with NIE’s mission to promote a more knowledgeable, responsible and capable Oklahoma citizenship; we are committed to promoting civic engagement and civic literacy in Oklahoma classrooms.

NIE provides resources to nearly 30% of the total statewide student population by servicing over 193,000 Oklahoma students. Last year, we performed an analysis of our registered schools based on a report published by the Oklahoma State Department of Education. What we learned through that process is that 70% of the schools being served by our Newspapers in Education program are schools in which 50% or more of the student body participated in the Free Lunch program during the 2015 – 2016 school year.
