National expert promotes
food allergy awareness in UCS


Kyle Dine loves sports, dancing, birthday parties and camping.

He also has food allergies - and while he has to take precautions, it is not something that defines him.

"Food allergies are just a small part of who I am," Dine told a group of Beck Elementary students. "We all have something. For me, I've got food allergies."

Dine is a national expert on food allergies who was in UCS for three days this week to promote allergy awareness. He met with students during the day and spoke to parents at an evening meeting.

A grant from the Target Corporation and two regional arts organizations was music to the ears of students from Harvey and Flickinger Elementary schools.

Students were able to attend the recent performance of the Motor City Symphony Orchestra's Youth Concert, thanks to $468 worth of grants.

The Target Corporation provided $300 for Flickinger Elementary sixth graders to attend the concert. A $168 grant from the Michigan Youth Arts and the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs provided funds for fifth-grade students at Harvey Elementary.
