The University of Michigan Edward Ginsberg Center Community Service and Learning promotes community service. In the spirit of that goal the center sent volunteers to read to Lawton students during March Reading Month.
The volunteers were greatly appreciated by teachers. “The children respond a little differently and in a very positive way when it’s someone we’re not used to,” said Susan Baily. “So we’re always happy to have volunteer readers.”
The volunteers enjoyed the time they spent with the kids. “I’m having a great time,” said Sara Saylor, a literacy project coordinator for the center. “We’re hoping to engage kids with books and show how U-M supports AAPS.”
The Ginsberg Center coordinated with Annette Ferguson in the AAPS Partners for Excellence office to send volunteers into the schools.
