Athens State Holds Ribbon Cutting for New Listerhill Credit Union Reading and Literacy Lab

Listerhill Reading Lab Ribbon Cutting

On April 27, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held to celebrate the grand opening of the Listerhill Credit Union Reading and Literacy Lab.

Last fall, Listerhill donated $25,000 to allow for the purchase and provision of a smart board, books, software, games, journals, assessment tools, technology, and site visits so the Lab can better prepare pre-service teachers for the classroom. The updates to the Reading Lab will provide hands-on training and experience to an estimated 1,000 teacher candidates and early in-service teachers over five years. In turn, thousands of teacher candidates will be positively impacted and have their level of ‘teaching reading’ improved.
