Rotary Is For Reading

Rotary is for Reading is a program that the Kalamazoo Rotary has formed to support 2nd grade students in Kalamazoo Public Schools. 


The goal of the program is to teach students to take their work seriously, understand the importance of school, and ultimately take advantage of The Kalamazoo Promise.



Author Jennifer Clark, and illustrator Leslie Helakoski, worked with Kalamazoo Schools and also with the Rotary is for Reading committee, to come up with a book that is specific to the 2nd graders in Kalamazoo.



We at Rose Street Advisors were able to partner with the Douglass Community Center and Sid Ellis in particular, who is a master storyteller, to read the book on video. It will then be distributed to all of the 2nd graders in Kalamazoo this year.



We are excited to provide students with the experience of having the book read to them by a Master Storyteller.

Meet Kevin Brozovich, energetic entrepreneur, people-focused team-builder and HR practitioner-turned consultant. For almost 10 years, Kevin was Founder and Chief People Officer of HRM Innovations, a Kalamazoo-based Human Resources consulting firm many would consider the top in the region. After pulling his hair out making daily decisions about running the business (does it matter where the coffee comes from?), Kevin joined forces with the Rose Street Advisors team so he could solely focus on what he loves most: working with clients.
