Sheriff Chuck Smith wanted to inform the citizens about a program in the schools that his agency has been involved with along with various other community businesses and community volunteers. “On May 1, 2014 our personnel had the pleasure of reading to the 1st grade and 4th grade students at Mountain View Elementary School. We also read to the students at Unity Elementary on April 21st, 2014. This program has been spearheaded by Robin McInvale and Pepper Connell who have been instrumental in the success of this program. We are more than happy to help in this endeavor to help our youth. There are studies that show that kids that read or have books read to them at an early age have an increased chance of graduating high school. There are many others in this community who have given their time and effort to benefit this program. They are to be commended and my hats off to them.” Sheriff Smith stated.
“We are also involved in another program called “Real Men Read.” This has been a very satisfying program to be involved in as well. It has allowed for me and my personnel to have a positive interaction with the future of our community. Our SRO’s have been a major part of this success. All of these programs being put forth to benefit our youth is rewarding all the way around.”Smith advised.
