"Gear Up" for Reading

All six GEAR UP programs and Leadership Clubs in Bell County partnered to promote Literacy at the Read Across America community event held at the Middlesboro Mall on Saturday, March 7, 2020.  GEAR UP staff and Club members offered a variety of activities for Parents and Children to build excitement around READING and Parent Engagement!    
 
In honor of Dr. Seuss book, "Oh The Places You Will GO" 8th grade students' College and Career Boards where featured in a gallery at the Middlesboro Mall and will remain on display the entire month of March!  
 
A special thanks goes out to the three local college students who volunteered to assist with this great event and mentor our leadership teams, Sydney Jones Freshman at  Eastern Kentucky University, Allyson Carey Sophomore at Lincoln Memorial University and Jaymine Carey Graduate from University of the Cumberlands.  (Third Picture Attached)
 
IT"S GREAT TO BE GEAR UP!
