MSU’s SNDU chapter spearheads Dr. Seuss literacy event in Minot Public Schools

On March 4, Minot State University’s Student North Dakota United chapter and North Dakota United-Retired coordinated a literacy event throughout the Minot Public School District. The event commemorated Dr. Seuss’ birthday and Read Across America.

“We gave a book to every Minot Public student, grades kindergarten through second,” said McKenna Hodenfield, SNDU public relations officer. “SNDU was honored to organize such a large event to promote literacy and the love of reading to community children. This event is possible thanks to the leadership of our officers and fundraising efforts from our SNDU members.”

Minot State SNDU and NDU-Retired members read a book to classes. They then gave a new book to each student in the class to take home.
