NSU Law Participates in Broward’s Read for the Record Event

Broward Reads for the Record 2

Judge Robert Diaz, 17th Circuit Court of Florida, NSU Law Public Interest Law Society Students Regina Pitarch, Lindsay Lawrence, Alexis Davis, and Director of Public Interest Programs, Jennifer Gordon.

Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law Center’s Public Interest Law Society recently participated in the national Read for the Record event at Endeavor Primary Learning Center in Lauderhill. The event celebrates literacy by mobilizing millions of children and adults to read the same book on the same day. Children’s Services Council of Broward County (CSC) organized the event and partnered with local businesses, non-profit organizations and other community stakeholders to make an impact on the literacy development of nearly 40,000 of Broward’s youngest residents.

Participants including teachers, parents, caregivers, local officials, and older children read “Bunny Cakes,” by Rosemary Wells to students. The campaign goal in Broward was to ensure that every four and five-year-old gets a copy of the book to take home. That number is just under 40,000, including students from 500 voluntary pre-Kindergarten centers, 225 schools and 1,500 classrooms. Teachers prepared for the day’s events by having the children make their own set of bunny ears to wear during the reading. The Read for the Record event at Endeavour enabled students to log 6,750 minutes worth of reading time.
