Albanians read to students

March 2, 2006

Albany -- Dozens of South Georgians went to school Thursday to read to students.

Judge Nancy Stephenson read to first graders at West Town Elementary School as part of "Read across America Day."

District Attorney Ken Hodges read to third graders in another classroom. The Dougherty County Schools invite people from all walks of life to read to children on March Second. 

 Organizers say most people are happy to donate their time. Media Specialist Marie Salter said "I think people like to read, and like to share the joy of reading. I think community leaders know that reading is the key to success."

 March Second was chosen for Read Across America Day, because it is the birth date of the author of the famous Dr. Seuss books 102 years ago.
