Elon Reading Program Receives Grant
A program that started at Elon University 12 years ago has just gotten word of a grant worth more than a million dollars. The program teaches reading to kids in the Alamance Burlington School system, especially those learning English as a second language. It is called the “It takes a village” project. The grant is coming from an organization called the Oak Foundation. Elon, ABSS and Alamance Community College are all involved. Since the program started back in 2008, thousands of kids have come through.
