This morning the OEA was presented with the Oklahoma Reading Association's Celebrate Literacy Award in honor of the OEA Read Across America program. With Vice-President Becky Felts and Cat in the Hat, Bruce Treadaway, is John Pillow of the Christmas Connection. John has been instrumental in providing books to thousands of school children across the state of Oklahoma.
It's an honor for the OEA to win this award during the 10th anniversary of Read Across America. Thousands of children have benefited from this program statewide as our members and staff have been actively involved in the success of the program. So many groups have helped make this award possible and I want to thanks those groups who've been with us for a number of years: Staples, the Christmas Connection, Bob Moore Saturn of OKC, Blunk's Studios, and our number of esteemed Chairs. This program has been tremendous and we look forward to the next 10 years.
