Wildcats help inspire young readers

Wednesday, September 26, 2012
A group of 12 Cassville High School Wildcat football players recently volunteered to pose for a reading photo that is now on display at the Eagle Rock Branch Library. "I have noticed that the younger boys don't like to read, and I thought that if they saw their Big 'Cats reading some of their books it might get them to want to pick up a book," said Jennifer Cochran, of the Eagle Rock Branch Library. "Since the picture has been taken, more boys have checked out those books and have even asked for more books." Cochran said the Wildcat football players took time out of their personal schedules to pose for the photo in hopes of inspiring more youngsters to read.
