Real Men Read

a

Students at West Point Elementary School were recently treated to special guest readers in their classrooms. Community volunteers took time out of their busy schedules to read as part of the fourth annual Real Men Read initiative. This initiative brings community members into the school while promoting the benefits of reading. Each man was assigned to a classroom where they read a story and shared with the students their own personal reading history. The men also told the students how reading impacts them now and how they utilize reading in their careers. A special thank you goes out to all the Troup County men who supported this event!
