"Reading Between the Lions"
Every week a Rotarian reads to a pre-elementary group of students at Oakland Heights Elementary School. The program has proven to increase attendance and student reading abilities as compared to other students. November 2012.
Tom Tabereaux was enthusiastic about the experience... but two out of three weren't buying it!
From February 11 through April 29, 2009 the Meridian Rotary Club sponsored a weekly reading program at A Small World DayCare with Lead Teacher Susan Goins. One member each week went to the daycare and read a book to a class of 14 students, ranging in age from 3 to 4. Both students and readers had a positive and marvelous experience! Crystal Dupre' served as Chair of this project. Members who participated include John Burton, Christy Buckalew, Andrew Covington, Crystal Dupre', Noel Evans, Becky Farley, Charlie Gibson, Danyell Gibson, Michael Goggans, Arjen Lagendijk, Tom Maynor, and Cynthia Touchton.
