Governor Bruce Rauner stopped by and toured Memorial Elementary School on Wednesday afternoon as part of Read Across America Day in remembrance of the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Rauner also read the book, “Winnie” to third grade students in Miss Daugherty’s class and donated the book to the school library. Rauner thanked the teachers and encouraged students to keep reading. Nancy Ganci, Principal of Memorial Elementary School, told Regional Radio News it was an honor to have the Governor attend the school and talk to the students.
Ganci stated reading is a vital component of any curriculum.
