Delaware County Councilman Richard Womack was honored to read to students at W.B. Evans Elementary School in Yeadon on Tuesday, February 21, in recognition of Black History Month.
The guest reading is part of Council’s initiative to celebrate Black History in February and all year-long.
Councilman Womack read Grace Byers’ I am Enough, a lyrical ode to loving who you are, respecting others, and being kind to one another (with illustrations by Keturah A. Bobo) and I Promise, by Lebron James (with illustrations by Nina Mata), a lively and inspiring picture book that reminds us that tomorrow’s success starts with the promises we make to ourselves and our community today.
Thank you to Principal Catherine Smith, Kindergarten teachers Ms. Bodnar and Ms. Miller, 1st Grade teachers Ms. Carpenter and Ms. Gethers, and the bright, young students of W.B. Evans Elementary School.
