Read Aloud guest Jerry Revish, News Anchor from 10TV, joined the scholars today for Harambee. Revish read The Contest Between the Sun and the Wind: An Aesop’s Fable, retold by Heather Forest and illustrated by Susan Gaber. Servant Leader Interns Mr. Rock, Miss Biana, and Miss Myranda also participated in the read aloud as they mimed out the story for the scholars.

Revish led an engaging read aloud session, complimenting the scholars on their participation in Freedom Schools during their summer vacation. “Reading is so fundamental,” commented Revish, “when they get ready to go back to school in a few weeks they are going to be so far ahead of their classmates.” His first time at Harambee, Revish was impressed with the high-energy, motivational start to the scholars’ day, “I love the structure here… I could tell there is a lot going on at this school,” he concludes.
