KEDM Public Radio began the 2017 “Give the Joy of Learning” campaign with a book drive at Lexington Elementary School.

Students, parents and the community can bring new or “like new” books to Lexington or the United Way by December 8. The books will be distributed in December to students in schools in the City of Monroe as well as Ouachita, Lincoln and Union parishes as part of the year-end “Give the Joy of Learning” fundraising campaign for KEDM.

A group of Nursing students and faculty from the University of Louisiana at Monroe gave up four days of their summer vacation to lend medical assistance to those in need in the Dominican Republic.  Dr. Rhonda Hensley, associate director of the ULM Graduate Nursing Program, and Emily Webre, senior ULM nursing student, attended the trip and stopped by KEDM to share some of their experiences.
