Detroit, Michigan (PRWEB) May 25, 2011
The White House recently hosted its annual gathering of noted poets, artists and musicians, and among those invited were a group of Los Angeles high school poet students. These 10 students are members of the non-profit Get Lit and Buick was there to help them attend the day’s poetry events.
Buick enthusiastically helped the group’s founder and the student poets with two Buck Enclave crossovers to assist in their transportation needs.
Get Lit has been successful at reaching at-risk teenagers in almost 50 schools since it began in 2005. They focus on using classic poetry to engage learning through expression, memorization and recitation. Get Lit encourages its members to become leaders and a trip to the White House was extremely rewarding for these young student poets.
“These students represent a terrific example of our next generation of leaders and their celebration of human achievement is truly worthy of our support,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick sales, service and marketing.
While at the White House, students were able to participate in workshops with talented poets and even First Lady Michelle Obama. After the White House, the student poets continued to visit historic areas once occupied by famous poets, such as Langston Hughes.
Joyce Buick GMC of Mansfield, Ohio is proud to be a member of the Buick family. We are always thrilled to part of a group where community involvement is as important to them as it is to us.
