Wednesday, June 27, 2018
While sitting in his Grammy’s lap (Verlee Roark), Silas Roark, 5, recites every U.S. president from past to present from memory, then recites the Preamble, followed by the books of the Old and New Testament in perfect order. Verlee Roark is retired teacher who takes her grandchildren to the Cassville Branch Library on a regular basis to attend its programs, and enjoys educating them. Silas said he is thinking about entering a talent contest at the library on July 5 to showcase his amazing memory. Julia Kimer/reporter@cassville-democrat.com
