Photo CAU SAAC Joins Read Across America

Clark Atlanta University’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) joined Norcross and Grove Park Elementary Schools’ faculty, staff and students to help celebrate the importance of children’s literacy by participating in their “Read Across America” celebrations on Friday, March 1.

“It was an awesome experience reading to the elementary school children and participating in the event with them today,” said Clark Atlanta University SAAC President Kailyn Blackmon.

The National Education Association’s (NEA) “Read Across America” is the nation’s largest reading celebration and an annual motivation and awareness program that encourages every child in every community to celebrate reading. Last year First Lady Michelle Obama and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan joined NEA President Dennis Van Roekel at the Library of Congress to read with hundreds of local school children.
