'Community Readers' Program Inspires FESoT Students

Taylor Kurtz, Falcon Fire Department firefighter and District 49 graduate, reads to Falcon Elementary School of Technology students as part of the school’s ‘Community Readers’ program Nov. 3. The program, in its second year, enlists the help of community members in volunteering to read to students as part of the school’s primary reading initiative.


Kurtz, a 2013 Falcon Virtual Academy graduate (now called Springs Studio for Academic Excellence), says he appreciated the opportunity to read to students and “it means a lot to me to be able to give back to the community."
