In recent years, literacy has become a national priority, and our strategic partnership has led to the introduction of Wisconsin Reading Corps in our community. In this episode, we engage in a conversation with Felicia Dalton, Director of Strategic Initiatives, Eric Hoffman, Director of Wisconsin programs with Wisconsin Reading Corps, and Kristy Makowka, Interim Principal at Jefferson Elementary School. Together, they share their experiences, challenges, and victories in the shared mission of empowering our youth through literacy.
