Tomorrow, the Kent State chapter of Phi Sigma Pi will host a comedy competition. The event will be from 4 to 7:30 p.m. in the Kiva, and all proceeds will benefit Teach for America.

The comedy competition will be campus-wide and feature comedians such as Mark Colella and Schizo Bill. The event will include raffles and refreshments.

Stephanie Mathias, junior public relations major and the public relations chair of Phi Sigma Pi, said the honor fraternity’s national philanthropy is Teach for America. This semester, she said the Kent State chapter has dedicated more time to spreading Teach for America’s message and supporting their mission.

Teach for America is the national corps of outstanding recent college graduates who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools and become lifelong leaders in expanding educational opportunity.

“We believe everyone deserves a good education and the chance to shape their own future,” said Mary Brodland, senior general studies major and chair of the comedy competition event. “We need help supporting these low-income children and giving them a chance to rise to their full potential.”
