2012 Oct 2

Students from the William Peace University Teacher Education Club are partnering with the Cary Rotary Club for the Read a Book, Get a Book program.

Monica Leigh Long of Hurdle Mills, NC, is one of 15 students responsible for reviewing the books, establishing a grade level, and marking the books appropriately. The ongoing project is part of a partnership with the Cary Rotary Club to support at risk students in Wake County.

There are many children in Wake County that do not have books in their home to read. The Read a Book, Get a Book program provides gently used books to these students.
