Rally Starts Local Reading Program



January 7, 2006

The Dallas Stars Foundation Kicks off the Medical Center of Arlington
Stick with Reading Program with Spokesman Marty Turco.

Recognizing that illiteracy has become one of the most pervasive problems in our nation, the Dallas Stars Foundation has created the Medical Center of Arlington Stick With Reading program, with generous support from Minyards, Sack 'n' Save, & Carnival Food Stores.

Stars' goaltender Marty Turco currently serves as spokesman for the program, which encourages students to develop the healthy habit of reading in their leisure time. Students will record their reading minutes over the eight-week period and are eligible to receive incentive prizes and be named to the All-Star Reader Team. Medical Center of Arlington Stick With Reading is completely free and open to all Metroplex classrooms, private or public, in grades K-8.

The program kicked off this year on Thursday, January 5th at Santa Clara Catholic Academy in Dallas at the Stick with Reading Rally. The rally included the entire student body at the pre-K-8th grade school and was emceed by Celena Rae.

Stick with Reading spokesman Marty Turco, along with Jon Klemm and Steve Ott were on hand to answer questions at the assembly. At the conclusion of the assembly, Celena, Steve, Jon and Marty each visited the classrooms where they read to the students, answered more questions and signed autographs.

The Stick With Reading program has reached over 100,000 kids since its inception in 1998, and each year we receive more and more positive feedback about the impact this program is having in the lives of Metroplex kids.

Students who were previously never inclined to read outside of the classroom suddenly discover the excitement and enrichment offered by reading in their leisure time. They are encouraged to hear their sports heroes say how "cool" reading is and how much of a benefit it has been in their own careers.
