InsideOut student poet King reads at a podium against a backdrop of other students as sun sets at If the River Could Sing event in September 2023.

InsideOut student poet King Bethel wrote a spoken word piece that earned him a $25,000 scholarship from the Detroit Pistons Foundation.

King attended InsideOut Citywide Poets afterschool program for teens, as well as participating in our Thriving Together partnership with the Detroit Zoological Society. The scholarship will support King’s education at the Berklee College of Music.

Congratulations, King!
