July 11, 2014 - Thirteen local grade school students and 12 candidates for a Master’s degree in reading from King’s College recently completed the College’s second annual Reading Clinic.

The goal of the week-long event is to pair students looking for assistance in improving their reading comprehension level with people in the master’s of reading degree program at King’s.  Many of the master’s degree students are full-time grade school teachers.
