And the lucky winner is….drumroll please…

reading writing connection, dyslexia, reading,Our students!   For those of you who purchased a mystery bag of jewelry for the Reading Writing Connection you gave the gift of reading to a deserving child.  You also received a piece of jewelry and a chance to win a beautiful lemon quartz necklace donated by DuPuis Jeweler.  Some were very pleased with the piece they received…others not so much. That is why it is mystery.   But know that every gift works in BIG ways to help us promote our mission.

The drawing for the DuPuis lemon quartz  necklace was on November 28, 2012 and one of our students drew the winning card from hundreds of submissions.  The lucky winner was Sersena White.   She purchased her mystery jewelry bag at the State Employees Credit Union on Monroe Street here in Jackson, Michigan.  When she came to the office to pick up her prize she said “It was a life altering experience when I learned the value of reading and processing information. It opened up opportunities I never would have recognized before and that remains true for me today.  You can read words, math or social studies but it is all problem solving.  Thank you for helping students unlock the puzzle.”

 

Thank you Sersena for understanding the value of our work and thank you for supporting our mission by purchasing a “gift of reading mystery jewelry” piece.

We also want to thank the 400 plus local individuals who purchased jewelry and support our work with struggling readers.  But the real wlnner remains the children we serve.
