(Carrollton, Ga. – November 21, 2014) Scott Johnson, third grade student and top AR point earner for the 2014 REACH camp at Glanton­Hindsman Elementary held last summer, spoke to the Fairfield Kiwanis Club on November 18, 2014.

Scott attributed his love and success of reading to the time he spent at Camp REACH. He shared his happiness at having won a new bicycle for his reading accomplishments and stated “Oh, I definitely will attend next summer. It was fun, and I can’t wait to see what I might win next year!” Johnson also thanked the Kiwanis Club for supporting Glanton­Hindsman Elementary School.
