Wentzell, and State Librarian Kendall Wiggin were on hand to stress the importance of reading during the summer and to recognize the top-performing schools from the 2016 Summer Reading Challenge. Schools compete based on student population and grade level. The program identifies the schools with the highest percentage of participating enrollment and the highest number of books read by participating students.
