Nora Stewart Readers Needed

The Network continues to provide a “reader” every week at 10:00am for our Reading Program with Nora Stewart Early Learning Center. It’s hard to measure the effects on our children of having MEN, especially BLACK MEN reading to them, but the Network is committed to this project. Dr. Fred Williams III has done a fantastic job of coordinating this work for us and we are soliciting ADDITIONAL men to help us in trying to have an impact on these children. It only takes about 20 minutes, it’s a lot of fun, the kids are great and they really enjoy your being there. We guarantee it will put a smile on your face!

For questions and/or to participate, please e-mail Dr. Williams at: williamsfre@missouri.edu
