Bobby Tuck Participates in National Reading Week

Bobby Tuck had the privilege to read to a group of second graders at Powell Valley Primary School in Big Stone Gap, VA.  This is National Reading Week and each year the school invites business leaders, professors, and town and state officials to read books to the students.  This year he read the Dr. Seuss book “There’s a Wocket in my Pocket!” and “I Wanna Iguana” by Karen Kaufman Orloff and David Catrow. The class of about fifteen second graders were a lot of fun to read to and he got a lot of enjoyment out of participating with the students and explaining to them why they needed to read.  As one student told him after Bobby asked why they should learn to read, he said,  “So I can become smarter.”  Bobby commented, “I hope that the students enjoyed the class half as much as I did.  I commend the school for the annual participation in this great program.”
