DECA Promotes Literacy, Careers with Annual Unite to Read
Grayson County third graders were treated to a day to explore careers with Curious George and the many partners who came together for DECA’s annual Unite to Read. Each year an age-appropriate book is specially selected for the event, with each child receiving a copy. The state focus on college and career readiness made “Curious George Takes a Job” a perfect selection this year. Students from each Technology Center career program, FFA, FCCLA and the Art Club joined with emergency medical, law enforcement, the library and businesses to provide hands-on experiences into a variety of careers.
Unite to Read is a statewide literacy project designed by members of Kentucky's Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs), and implemented in schools across the state in the 2004-05 school year. GCHS DECA has led the event locally every year since.
