The area’s future talent was on display at the Freedom Readers 3rd Annual Red Carpet Awards ceremony at Horry-Georgetown Technical College on Saturday April 29. Twelve teams of scholars and tutors showed up and showed out, letting the more than 200 crowd members know what they learned from the spring 2017 fall session theme, Money Matters. Superior public speaking abilities, growing vocabularies, enthusiastic recitations, and positive music set this event apart from past Freedom Readers events. The scholars proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that what they learned at spring 2017’s 14 weekly meetings had a major impact on their lives.
The mission of Freedom Readers is to improve reading skills in low-income communities by providing one-to-one literacy tutoring, free books for home libraries, and an inspiring, high-energy learning environment.
