Meet Albion's 2019 Team


Albion's Big Read Student Leaders are rising 8th, 9th, and 10th graders who call Albion home. These students independently lead and facilitate community-wide book discussions throughout October 2019. They are role models for their peers, neighbors, and the greater Albion community. We celebrate the open hearts and minds of the following 2019 Big Read Youth Leaders:

The Big Read Ambassadors are veterans of Albion’s Big Read Youth Leadership Program. You can identify Big Read Ambassadors by the bright red shirt featuring logos from past Big Reads on the front and the conversation starter—“Ask me about Albion’s Big Read!”—on the back. So if you see young folks wearing a Big Read Ambassadors shirt, just follow the instructions and ask them about Albion’s Big Read. You’ll be glad you did! Albion’s Big Read Ambassadors:

Our summer training program would not be possible without the outstanding support, leadership, and commitment from several students at Albion College. College Volunteers apply and interview for their role, and it's entirely volunteer-based. We deeply value the hard work and dedication of the following 2019 college volunteers:
