Dr. Jones gives thanks - to you

UNITED WAY MINUTE

We appreciate the partnership with the Bibb County School District​ to help with reading initiatives to improve literacy. The district's overriding goal fits well with our Read United program. Dr. Curtis Jones took a minute of his time to share what donors and volunteers mean to this effort.

The movement has produced results with substantial increases in reading test scores by Bibb County students since 2015.

Read United serves as a piece of the literacy puzzle. The volunteer efforts through Read United programs, such as Read2Succeed, are a way to connect community with students.

As the Telegraph reported in January, several schools in the district have adopted the Accelerated Reader program that gives incentives to get students to read more.

We thank Dr. Jones for addressing the people who volunteer their time and money to this cause of reading literacy.
