Rotarians Alissa Viscome, Patrick Kinane and Pamela Kinane spoke with the students about the importance of literacy and learning.

They said that when students obtain the proper educational tools, such as their own dictionary, they will improve their literacy skills.

As the dictionaries were handed out to each student, they rushed back to their seats and flipped through the pages, looking up new words.
