Volunteers for SMART (Start Making a Reader Today) have once again made a difference to 176 students in Jefferson County elementary schools.
These 155 wonderful volunteers are community members and high school students who share their time and love of reading with kindergartners, first, second and third graders. Just one hour per week can make a big difference! Reading is a good foundation for success as an adult. Caring volunteers are the foundation for the success of SMART.
We, the Site Coordinators, extend our heartfelt appreciation to them.
