Former First Lady Laura Bush continued her White House Initiative in Fort Worth, Texas by speaking at the TarrantNET banquet benefiting Read 2 Win! This program is a faith based program that offers reading tutoring to elementary students. Churches are partnered with elementary schools to assist in bringing students up to grade level in reading.
I had a wonderful time sitting at the media table with Jill Darden, editor and CEO of the Fort Worth Black News, Anna Tinsley, reporter for the Star-Telegram and Britine Burton, professor at Dallas County Community College District and of course former First Lady Laura Bush who is now a very happy grandmother who enjoys reading.
