Rep. Guinta to present award to woman who improved her reading skills in order to read books to her young daughter, in Manchester on Tuesday 1/3
Shannon Moody’s story is truly inspiring. Several years ago, she had very low adult level reading skills and wanted to read books to her young daughter. After working with a tutor from Learn to Read Manchester, her reading ability dramatically improved – and she recently read her 700th book to her daughter (with most of those books coming from the Manchester Public Library, too). Congressman Guinta will present the STAR Award (Student Achievement in Reading) to Shannon. It’s given to one student per year who has shown exceptional dedication, commitment and persistence in reaching their literacy goal. Her tutor will also be recognized.
