Three Supers Talk in Phoenix

March 1, 2016

Read to Them co-ordinated a group presentation on One District, One Book at the American Association of School Administrators national convention in Phoenix, AZ in February.

The session, titled “Superintendents Serve as Reading Leaders,” was hosted by Chuck Woodruff, the chief operating officer of AASA and featured…

Steve Anderson, Superintendent, Lake Hamilton SD, Pearcy, AK

Dave Pennington, Superintendent, Ponca City, OK and past AASA president

Mike Poore, Superintendent, Bentonville Public Schools, AK

Brad Reed, Superintendent, Great Bend, KS

Gary Anderson, Read to Them founder and Director of ODOB

 

You can listen to three short excerpts of what some of them had to say below…

 

Mike Poore, Superintendent, Bentonville School District, AR

Mike talks about his experience participating in seven years of ODOB in Bentonville!

 

David Pennington,  Superintendent, Ponca City Public Schools, OK

At the convention, Dave says, “The very last program we’d cut from our budget is One District, One Book.”

 

Brad Reed, Superintendent, Great Bend USD, KS

Brad describes the ten restaurants he got to participate in his community to support ODOB.  Waiters and waitresses asked student patrons trivia questions and rewarded them with free desserts.  Business ticked up!
