Noblesville School and Duke Energy are partnering again after Duke Energy recently presented a $10,000 check to the district to fund a new reading program.
The program, Real Men Read, was developed to empower kindergarten students to develop a love for reading through positive male role models.
The program brings male community leaders into White River and North elementary schools once each month to read to kindergarteners. Students also will get to take home a copy of the month’s book to build their home library collection.
The gift is one of several Duke Energy has made in support of Noblesville Schools, having provided classroom and athletic grants and sponsoring events through its work with the Noblesville Schools Education Foundation.
Community leaders interested in volunteering for the Real Men Read program may contact program coordinator Erin Freestone at firstname.lastname@example.org.
