With the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards 2015 Season in the books, Thomas “Moose” Praytor was back in Mobile, Alabama and back making a difference in the community. Praytor was at E.R. Dickson Elementary reading to the 2nd Grade class as part of Jumpstart’s “Read for the Record” Initiative.
“I really had a good time with the kids in Mrs. Earnest class. I’m glad they gave me a picture book,” said Praytor. “My Grandmother instilled in all of us how important it is to give back. With our schedule it’s hard to do but when we can I’m happy to take part.”
Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® is a global campaign which generates public support for high-quality early learning by mobilizing millions of children and adults to take part in the world’s largest shared reading experience. Today, Jumpstart celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Read for the Record Inititative.
