Each year the NMSU College of Education’s Language, Literacy and Cultural Program sponsors the Annual Don & Sarrah Kidd Literacy Conference. The conference usually takes place during the Spring Semester and features speakers from around the nation.
The Fall 2017 Annual Don & Sarrah Kidd Literacy Conference was co-sponsored as the NMSU College of Education Symposium by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation and Don and Sarrah Kidd with an expanded slate of speakers – it was a great conference!
The Kidd Legacy
