Several students from Greeneville’s Hal Henard Elementary School who excelled in the “Slam Dunk Reading Program” held in recent weeks at the school were honored for their achievement during a recent Tusculum College basketball game.
The students also earned an in-school party for themselves and their classmates. TC’s basketball players have lent support to the reading program as a community project. Hal Henard educator Ron Fields led the project at the elementary school.
