About 20 volunteers from the Senior College spent much of the day March 4 reading to students at the Captain Albert W. Stevens School.

Senior College members also read to students at the Edna Drinkwater School in Northport and the Kermit Nickerson School in Swanville.

The event was part of “Read Across America,” a National Education Association program that focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships and reading resources. The event is held annually around or on the birthday of Dr. Seuss.

Here are some pictures taken in Terry Newton’s first-grade class.
