SPONSORSHIP of the READS Program is a unique opportunity to support our school systems. Our schools play a vital role in the future of this community and it is important to contribute to their efforts to better the education of our youth. Reading success is at the cornerstone of elementary education and the READS Program serves as a partnership between schools and local businesses to motivate students to read through public encouragement and recognition.
