Dawn Metzger, the executive director of Samaritan Inn, recently paid a visit to the pre-school classroom at the Little Sprouts Early Learning Center to read several of her favorite children’s books as part of Project Self-Sufficiency’s Celebrity Reader program.
“I miss reading to my children who are now 12 and 15,” commented Dawn. “The importance of taking time to read to your children cannot be stressed enough.”
The Celebrity Reader program is a component of Project Self-Sufficiency’s Family Literacy Program, which exists primarily to assist parents with obtaining their GED or with passing the college placement exam. While in the program, parents also engage in a variety of activities designed to promote literacy within the entire family.
