The KPS Promise signing day event rewards seniors as they prepare to graduate

“I got to walk around with my friends and talk to people from other schools I had never met. It was really dope, way better than I could’ve expected,” said Chauncey Coleman after attending the KPS Promise signing day. 

On May 10, Kalamazoo Public Schools (KPS) held a signing event for all KPS seniors. The event was held at the Arcadia Creek Festival Site and drew a large crowd of students. 

Activities including cornhole, a scavenger hunt, sumo wrestling, a dunk tank, caricature drawing and face painting were all available to students for free. Karaoke was also offered and kept many students entertained during the event. Senior Chauncy Coleman took advantage of the opportunity and sang for students as they gathered and cheered for him.

“I got up on stage, and I actually sang. Everybody was rocking out and everybody was really nice,” said Coleman. 

Food vouchers were given to students at the entrance and seniors could choose from three different food trucks at the event.

The most popular was Teresa’s Kitchen food truck which had a constant line. 

“The food there was good. It was really good, especially the tamales which I love,” said Ella Pickett. 

Colleges and universities from around the state set up tables for prospective students to visit. The booths included campus maps among other preparatory pamphlets. 

The event lasted three hours and concluded with a raffle drawing of several prizes and scholarship money to help students as they prepare to graduate. The final prize that was raffled off was an Apple Macbook Pro.
