Last week, Genesis Express hosted its annual summer reading program, the theme of which this year was “The Water Around Us.”

About 35 students from many different grades participated this year, and 11 adult volunteers, including educators, and seven student volunteers helped out, said Regina Dillard.

Genesis Express member George Radford said the summer reading program started in 1989, as a way to make sure kids have opportunities to learn during the summer while having some fun. Generally, there is a theme and meals are served, and a field trip is usually included, he stated.

Among the educators was Lavita Radford, a special education Kindergarten teacher in Clarksville, Tenn., as well as Theresa Wilson, and Sharon Radford, an elementary-level math teacher in Trigg County and Anges Radford.
