FARMERSBURG, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Our station, WTWO/WAWV, was happy to partner with Horizon Health to promote reading in the community on Tuesday.

WTWO volunteers delivered around one thousand books to Sugar Creek Consolidated Elementary for distribution to students.

WTWO’s Assignment Editor and Reporter Nicole Krasean also read to the children. Reading helps to advance kids’ education, something Horizon Health says is important, especially at an early age.

“We believe in a holistic approach, so that starts outside of the clinic, it starts outside of the doctor’s office so this is just one of those small opportunities that we have to help do that,” said Katie Sullivan, Bachelor in Social Work at Horizon Health.

“We’ve really practiced really hard learning those early reading skills, abilities, but it’s important for the students and for families to practice those skills at home,” said Ryan Nason, Dean of Sugar Creek Consolidation and Principal Designee.

Sugar Creek Consolidated also said it was very grateful to receive the books.
