Summer Reading Challenge Garners Tremendous Response

Assemblyman thanks local students for their participation

Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,I,C – Batavia) recently announced the overwhelming response to this year’s Summer Reading Challenge. Students from all over the region participated, spending their vacation honing both their reading skills and their minds.

“The students in our area certainly made good use of their time off this summer,” said Hawley. “Children in communities like Albion, Medina, Holley Pavilion, Hilton, Brockport, Batavia and more learned firsthand the joys of reading this summer. Their participation makes the Summer Reading Challenge such a gratifying program, and I thank them for joining me in promoting the joy of literature.”

Children that read for 40 days over the summer will receive a New York State Assembly “Excellence in Reading” certificate from Assemblyman Hawley.
