100 Men Reading Day May 17, 2018

Our Visionary…

Visionary Imani Henry and Gov. Markell


100 Men Reading Day is an initiative envisioned by Ms. Imani Henry, a 10 year old from Newark, DE who saw the need to have men go into the schools and child care centers to read to students in order to promote literacy development and encourage students to read.  As a result of her vision, Imani was awarded a grant sponsored by Macy’s and Reading is Fundamental (RIF) 45th Annual Reading Celebration Campaign.  Governor Markell recognized her hard work and commitment to serve her community through her efforts to promote literacy, giving her an official Literacy Month Proclamation.  Read more at About.
