Sanchez: ‘Read to Lead’ is beneficial

-A A +A

State > Lt. Governor says reading is key for students’ plans for the future

By Tris DeRoma

When Lt. Gov. John Sanchez visited Chamisa Elementary School recently, he brought gifts. A lot of them.
Sanchez and his aides brought stacks and stacks of “B is for Buckaroo,” an alphabet book by Gleaves and Louise Doak Whitney designed for readers kindergarten through third grade.
The visit coincides with state’s “Read to Lead” initiative, a program Gov. Susana Martinez started in 2012 in an effort to promote literacy.
Throughout 2015, the governor, as well as the lieutenant governor will be making stops throughout the state, handing out the book to eager students and hopefully igniting a love for reading in the students that will last a lifetime.
“We can’t think of a better investment that the state can make not only in our kids but our teachers, too,” Sanchez said. “If a child learns how to read then they can keep on learning their entire life. It’s the greatest gift we can give them.”
During his visit, Sanchez read the entire book to Chamisa’s first, second and third graders before giving them their own copy.
He also shared with the students his own love of reading and why reading is so important.
