Read Across America

In support of Read Across America Day, SM&P employees Sherri Dombi and Victoria Turney recently read to first-graders at Park Street Elementary School in Marietta. Read Across America is a reading initiative created in 1997 by the National Education Association. Sherri noted that the children were very engaged and enjoyed the book. SM&P joined the local event, which is hosted annually by the Marietta Kiwanis Club. Each year, club members and guests read to all first-graders in the Marietta City Schools system and give them their own copy to read to a sibling, parent, or even the family pet.
