Posted on Jul 13, 2017
On July 11th, Rockford Public Schools Board of Education presented Rockford Rotarian Bob Presman, ROCKFORD READS Committee Chair, with a Certificate of Recognition for his work with ROCKFORD READS.  In the 2016-17 school year, 170 community volunteers worked one-on-one with second grade students throughout the RPS 205 system.  
 
ROCKFORD READS is a community volunteer reading program initiated by Rockford Rotary in 2001 to enhance the literacy development of second grade students in the Rockford Public Schools.  The volunteer and student read aloud to one another increasing the student's reading and language skills.  Since the programs inception over 3,000 students have benefited from working with ROCKFORD READS community volunteers.
