Law School Treats Students to WMU-Cooley For Kids Day

On Tuesday, August 1, Western Michigan University Cooley Law School students, faculty and staff hosted hundreds of youth participants from the Lansing Parks and Recreation summer program at Cooley Law School Stadium for the 17th annual WMU-Cooley for Kids Day.

During the afternoon of fun activities, participants had the opportunity to meet Lansing Lugnuts baseball players, participate in the throwing of the first pitch, and eat lunch at the stadium while watching the Lansing Lugnuts play against the Great Lakes Loons.

Before the day at the ballpark, participants from the recreation program had an opportunity to submit an essay to win an opportunity to be selected as a member of a “dream team.” The winning essay winners, along with a WMU-Cooley Law School student buddy, ran onto the field with a Lugnuts player during the game’s opening introductions.

“We love collaborating with Lansing Parks and Recreation in order to treat local youth to a Lansing Lugnuts baseball game. It’s a joy to see how much fun the students have every year,” said Terry Carella, WMU-Cooley’s communications director.
