On Thursday, October 4 student volunteers from Medaille College and Riverside High School took part in the 2012 "Read for the Record" program, a national campaign to promote early childhood education.
The "Read for the Record" program encourages communities across the United States to read the same book at the same time, in an attempt to break the world record in doing so. Last year, 2.2 million people surpassed the previous record.
Undergraduate students from Medaille contributed to the movement by reading Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad to elementary children from Buffalo Public Schools at the Northwest Buffalo Community Center.
Read to Succeed Buffalo, a community organization aimed at helping families become life-long learners encouraged local schools, organizations and families to take part in the initiative, which was organized by Jumpstart and presented with the Pearson Foundation.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
