Red Clay Consolidated School District Superintendent Merv Daugherty, Ed.D. is a tireless supporter of early childhood literacy. And, at Success Won’t Wait, we have been thrilled to help him share a love of reading with schoolchildren throughout the district since 2014!
This week, we supplied Mr. Daugherty with 300 children’s books, which he will give away to Red Clay students at various school events.
Maintaining a home library is absolutely crucial for early reading success. Experts suggest a home library of 100 or more titles for every student. So, this donation by Success Won’t Wait will help the children get a great start!
Many thanks to Yvonne Johnson, (pictured, left) VP for Advocacy and Past President and of the Delaware PTA, who organized the donation.
