The NDSU chapter of Golden Key International Honour Society and West Acres Shopping Center will host a Read for the Record event on Thursday, Oct. 4, from noon to 7 p.m. in the Herberger’s Court at West Acres.
Read for the Record began in 2006. Each year, the goal is to break the record for reading the same book to as many children as possible on the designated day. Read for the Record also works to promote literacy and education for all children. The 2012 event will feature “Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad” by David Soman and Jacky Davis. NDSU Golden Key has participated in Read for the Record each year since 2008 while West Acres is participating for the first time.
Readers will include NDSU Golden Key members, honorary members and advisers. North Dakota First Lady Betsy Dalrymple is scheduled to read at 12:15 p.m. Amy Ruley, NDSU associate athletic director of development, is scheduled to read at 2 p.m.
The NDSU chapter of Golden Key International Honour Society was established Nov. 21, 1995.
NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
