Volunteer Tutors

Plymouth High School recently held its 14th annual appreciation breakfast for 29 math, science and English tutors.

Tutors volunteer at the beginning of each semester and are matched to PHS students throughout the year as the need arises. Students being tutored find greater success in their classes and demonstrate an increase in their overall confidence and self-esteem. Tutors experience first-hand the rewards of helping others while strengthening their leadership skills.

Each tutor who attended this year’s breakfast on May 14 received a gift bag and participated in raffle drawings. Gifts and prizes were donated by Dr. Frank Gatyas DDS, K-W Electric, Kwik Trip, Marshall Sign, Meyer Motors, Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, Suchon Funeral Home and Cremation Services, and Tom and Jerry's Mini Golf.
