TWU's Neely to be guest reader for ATPE program


DENTON — Dr. Robert Neely, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Texas Woman’s University, will be a “guest reader” for the community summer reading program hosted by the TWU chapter of the Association of Texas Professional Educators (ATPE). Dr. Neely, who began serving as TWU’s provost in January, will read to children beginning at 11 a.m. Wednesday, July 20 at the Barnes & Noble bookstore in the Golden Triangle Mall, 2201 S. Interstate 35 E in Denton.

The university’s ATPE chapter, in partnership with the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Denton, is conducting a community summer reading program for children from 11 a.m. until noon each Wednesday through Aug. 3. Sessions include a story, activities and crafts developed by TWU preservice teaching students (those who have not yet begun classroom student teaching).

“This is an opportunity for our students to grow professionally as well as volunteer their time by serving to promote literacy in our community,” said Dr. Rebecca Fredrickson, TWU assistant professor of curriculum and education and co-sponsor for the university’s ATPE chapter. “Barnes & Noble has been a wonderful partner in this venture.”

Denton Mayor Mark Burroughs will be a guest reader for the program on Wednesday, July 27.
