Thank you to everyone who helped make my Summer Reading Challenge a success. 3000 tickets were given out as a result of students completing the challenge. It was an honor to host and I couldn't have done it without the support of everyone in the Cal community.
Going forward, I will continue to encourage kids to read. I believe it is one of the most important skills that anyone can learn. Education is the solution to many problems in society and much of a student's success starts with childhood reading. That's why I believe promoting reading is so important.
For those who were able to stay after the game, I mentioned a new program Cal Athletics is starting. It's called Cal Bears Read. It's similar to my program in that students can read to earn tickets to Cal games, but this time not just football! More information can be found here: calbears.com/calbearsread.
Thanks again to everyone who participated and completed my challenge! I'm working to continue the program for years to come. Even though the challenge is over, I would love to stay connected with you all. Please reach out anytime.
