Submitted by RWC
Central area schools have 405 third graders enrolled, and each one of them received a gift from the Republican Women of Central – a dictionary of their very own – to keep for use throughout their education. 
Students, third grade teachers and librarians at St. Alphonsus, Central Private, Tanglewood Elementary and Galilee Baptist Church School received the dictionaries from funds raised last year by RWC as their Education and Literacy and Civics for Kids programs, chaired by Maudell Hill. Committee members are Tracy Barnes and Louise Rauls. 
A special presentation was made by George and Martha Washington (Mary Louise and Corley Senyard of Central). The Senyards are members of the East Baton Rouge Parish Republican Women and regularly visit civic and history classrooms in schools as part of their Civics for Kids program. Students were taught the significance of the Pledge of Allegiance and importance of patriotism.
Assisting with dictionary distribution with the Education and Literacy committee were RWC President Joan Lansing, Second Vice President Debbie Dougherty, Chaplain Janice Green, Historian Chris Bone, Parliamentarian Judy Clay, C Brockwell Bone, Stacy Wicker Butler, Judy Clay, Juanita Ross, and Ann Watts. 
If fundraising efforts are successful in 2012, RWC will distribute dictionaries to the new 2012-2013 classes of third graders in October.
