Lemke awarded books for studentsby jmaloni
Jessica Lemke, pre-kindergarten teacher at St. Peter R.C. School, was one of 20-plus grantees of the national "BE INSPIRED" Disney/ABC Television Group and First Book Literacy Campaign selected to receive free books for every student in his or her school. On Sunday, Lemke was recognized for promoting literacy at the "Be Inspired" Laps for Literacy event at the Eastern Hills Mall.
To kick off summer reading, St. Peter students will be presented with the books before the end of the school year.
