School-trained volunteers meet students on a weekly basis to help with important reading drills and one-to-one assistance in a program coordinated by Starfish Mentoring director Liz Blubaugh and RCPS’ Shannon Grimsley, and dedicated community volunteers like Lois Markee, here working with Ava Jenkins.
