Dictionary Project receives Daughters of the American Revolution National Community Service Award

For seven years, The Dictionary Project and Mary French have provided tens of thousands of dictionaries to third graders.


She’s been in The Wall Street Journal. She’s been on ABC News, and now she’s been honored by the Daughters of the American Revolution with its National Community Service Award.


French started this project in Mount Pleasant. She has distributed 680,000 dictionaries to students in 47 states, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. That’s a lot of dictionaries.
