Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Edgar Hernandez, MA!

We celebrate with Edgar Hernandez and his family his graduation last week with his Master of Arts degree in Applied Anthropology from CSU Long Beach!

Edgar is a former Reading to Kids kid from back in 2001, a current Taskforce member, and a Site Coordinator at Magnolia Elementary. He still has the books he received from us back in 2001 - see http://readingtokids.blogspot.com/2015/05/ for that story and a photo!


Congratulations, Edgar! We are so proud to have inspired you with reading as you inspire us with your volunteerism and accomplishments!
