Parkway Elementary Students and Mount Union Tutors Celebrate Successful Year
May 10, 2010
Mount Union College students, participants in the America Reads/America Counts national tutoring program, celebrated a successful year with Parkway Elementary School students at an ice cream party held at the College.
The Parkway students were rewarded for their work in the program.
The fourth and fifth grade Parkway students walked to the Hoover-Price Campus Center with their teachers. The Mount Union dining services staff had ice cream and cones waiting for them. After enjoying their ice cream, the students and tutors played a math game.
Some of the Mount Union students who serve as tutors are volunteers and others are work study students. The college liaison for the program is Marty CashBurless, the College chaplain. Rebecca Hovanec, a senior from Alliance, serves as the site coordinator for Parkway Elementary School.

Mount Union is also involved in the America Reads/America Counts Program at South Lincoln Elementary in Alliance. America Reads/America Counts is a literacy and math skills program.
