JMU Center for Economic Education Civic Engagement Initiative
Lynne F. Stover
The JMU Center for Economic Education had a major initiative in civic engagement through Virginia's "Reading Makes Cent$" program. Associate Director Lynne F. Stover served statewide as lead presenter for "Reading Makes Cent$,” working on behalf of the Virginia Association of School Librarians and Virginia 529. In addition, she coordinated an area effort with local Rotary clubs to provide an extended “Reading Makes Cent$” library available to every elementary school in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. This effort included overall management of the effort and multiple presentations at the schools with visiting Rotarians.
