Helping define success

During January and February, the Rotary Club of Westminster 7:10 for the sixth year gave all third graders in Westminster their own personal dictionaries. The club strongly believes that the ability to read is essential in a person’s tools for living and that having one’s own dictionary can significantly improve one’s reading skills. This year the program is providing some 1,800 third graders in 22 schools in District R-1, 12, and 50 and three charter schools with dictionaries. The dictionaries are produced by The Dictionary Project Inc. in South Carolina.
