Read Across Clinton is Recipient of IEA SCORE Grant

Read Across Clinton is an annual free book giveaway event that received an IEA SCORE grant this past May. Recognizing the importance of summer reading, IEA members Therese Samp and Bethany Coffman, along with community members, held the all-day event at the Clinton Elementary School on May 21. Students grades 2-5 gathered to pick out their favorite books to take home to read during the summer break. Samp and Coffman stressed the importance of summer reading on the part of students to maintain their reading level while school is out.
