CDI: Prepared for Service on MLK Day

CDI Scholars and counselors participated in the Martin Luther King Day of Service on January 16.  They did a LOT of painting that day–going green, you could say–and even met Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

Thanks to all the Scholars who participated. Here are some pictures from the day:

Photo Contest for CDI Scholars!

CDI is having two photo contests – one for color photographs and the other for black and white photographs. Pictures should be of a CDI Scholar (you) in college gear, participating in a school activity (volunteering, sport, band, club, etc..)  on or off campus, or studying abroad. In order to be considered for the contest, photographs should be sent to Ms. Hilton by February 1, 2012. CDI staff will review photos submitted and will then pick the top three to post on the CDI Page to have others vote on their favorite picture. The one with the top votes will receive a $50 gift card.

Just a few links this week:
