Carl Smith volunteered to be a guest reader at March Elementary School

WFMZ-TV produced a news segment on Read Across America Day, featuring Lafayette students reading to children at March Elementary School. The Landis Center for Community Engagement organized the event, which is part of a national reading program designed to engage kids in reading books. Twenty-eight Lafayette students participated in the program and read books at three Easton elementary schools.

Carl Smith ’23, a psychology major and member of the men’s football team, and Cole Dutton ’22, an economics major and member of the men’s lacrosse team, were interviewed on camera by the news outlet.
