Students from the Leadership class visited Martha and Josh Morriss Mathematics and Engineering Elementary School to read children’s books to elementary students on March 2. The event commemorated the birthday of Dr. Seuss, a famous children’s author.

“We read children’s books to the Kindergartners through second graders,” junior Ladd Preston said. “Me and Coltin walked in and [the kids] were pretty excited. We started reading to them and they were all really into the book.”

Not only did the elementary students reply with laughter but the Leadership students enjoyed it just as much.

“I felt really good about it,” Preston said. “It was really fun reading to all of the kids who squealed with excitement.”
