State Sen. Rebekah Warren visited Bryant Elementary School  on March 18 to kick off the school’s March is Reading Month, sharing “Sylvester and the Magic Pebble” and “Click, Clack, Moo” to the delight of early elementary students who attend Bryant.

Warren said she was pleased to be at the school and said it was one of several stops she planned around her district to encourage young students to read.

“I think Sen. Warren has showed you that it’s very important to read,” Bryant reading teacher Beth Harrington told students following the presentation. “How many of you are going to read every day – it’s very important.”

Warren was given a Bryant T-shirt as a gift, and she left each student with a bookmark that included facts about Michigan and a booklet to take home.

Warren represents the 18th District, which covers much of Washtenaw County. She was recently elected to her first term in the Michigan Senate, and acts as Minority Vice-Chairwoman of both the Health Policy Committee and the Natural Resources, Environment and Great Lakes Committee. She also serves a member of the Finance Committee, the Regulatory Reform Committee, and the Reforms, Restructuring, and Reinventing Committee.

Prior to her work as a  state senator, she served as state representative for the 53rd House District for four years.
