There just aren't enough variations to "awww" to pair with the moments captured in this album posted by the Spartanburg Herald Journal showcasing students reading to animals at the Spartanburg Humane Society.  SAM is helping to expand summer literacy camp access to rising second graders as part of an initiative called Summer Climb. Thank you to School District 7 and the Spartanburg Herald Journal for showcasing such special moments and educational innovation.  All 7 Spartanburg County School Districts are engaging children in fun skill building camps this summer to turn "summer slide" into "summer climb."
