Encouraging the Love of Reading
In celebration of its 15th anniversary, the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland is providing $20,000 to fund a reading room at Carl & Louis Stokes Central Academy and scholarship opportunities for students in the Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood schools, including Stokes, George Washington Carver and Marion Sterling. The foundation is establishing both initiatives through the Carson Scholars Fund, a charitable organization founded in 1994 by world renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin S. Carson and his wife to encourage academic excellence. Listen to an interview with Dr. Carson, who was in Cleveland on Nov. 3 as the keynote speaker for the foundation's anniversary event at the Cleveland Public Library, on WCPN. Dr. Carson also spoke to 6th, 7th and 8th graders earlier in the day from the three Promise schools. More than 400 children's books were donated for the three schools by friends of the foundation in honor of our anniversary.
