Young Leaders Promote Reading

The United Way’s Young Leaders Society is helping promote reading and a love of books. The group gave a book to each kindergarten student at Scott Magnet School yesterday, part of the junior leader readers program. The United Way’s Young Leaders Society is a philanthropic group of young professionals under the age of 40. Dr. Ryan Yamka, a United Way volunteer, launched the reading program and chose the book, Edward the Emu, to give to the students. The book was read to the students by Brendan Wiley, the new director of the Topeka Zoo.
