BATAVIA, Ill., Nov. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dr. Ron Murphy joined the Boys and Girls Clubs in their area to attack the scourge of illiteracy. According to "Reading is Fundamental," there is a literacy crisis in America today with twenty-five million children in the U.S. who cannot read proficiently (analysis of NAEP?National Assessment of Educational Progress?test scores).
Dr. Murphy, having dedicated his life in service to his community as a dentist, was quoted as saying, "The difficulties we experience on our society is directly proportional to these appalling illiteracy rates. No-one can afford to stand on the sidelines hoping that someone else will do something. NO! Something must be done about this right now!"
During a special leadership conference held in Florida, every business owner attending decided to stand shoulder-to-shoulder; joining forces to do something about this?right now, right now!
They started by sending over 1,500 books to Boys and Girls Clubs in their communities. The mission of Boys and Girls Clubs is to enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens, especially those in need. These leaders support the vision of this national network of world-class clubs putting hope and safety within reach of every young person, and putting them on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, learning good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.
Reading is a vital cornerstone for our youth! Their future and the future of this society depends on this ability.
Dr. Murphy said, "We all need to do our part. I consider my greatest responsibility is to help others, and especially our youth. Boys and Girls Clubs are leading the way in showing us that something can be done about it; something can be done about illiteracy by everyone pitching in." And further stated, "Young adults are shown what's possible through enhancing literacy. This not only helps them to heighten their imagination, but also boosts their hopes and dreams; thus, creating a love for reading, which opens the doors to many opportunities."
