Driver to kick off reading program
MOORESVILLE ń NAS-CAR Camping World Series driver Dusty Davis will kick off the Driven to Read program at Granite Quarry Elementary School on Thursday, Sept. 29.
Driven to Read is a non-profit, merit-based reading program designed to encourage youngsters to increase reading proficiency through the power of racing. Aimed at elementary-age readers, children must read for 15 minutes to gain one mile on the track. At preset intervals, readers earn prizes in recognition of their accomplishments. The greater the mileage, the greater the reward.
ěReading is extremely important. I hope to inspire kids to start reading from an early age so they not only understand just how important it is, but also enjoy it,î said Davis, the 18-year-old spokesperson for Driven to Read.
