Foundation presents signed copies of books by Cheryl Klein
What a wonderful way to celebrate Ray-Pec graduate and children’s book author Cheryl Klein!
The Ray-Pec Public School Foundation purchased and presented two of Cheryl’s picture books for the library at each elementary school and Shull Early Learning Center.
During a visit home, Cheryl participated in an event and book signing at the Cass County Public Library. Cheryl signed copies of "Wings" and "Thunder Trucks" for each school. Cheryl is a 1996 Ray-Pec graduate. She was honored by the Ray-Pec Public School Foundation in 2017 with the Distinguished Alumni Award.
