Kerrville Morning Rotary Presents Dictionaries to Harper 6th Graders

Thirteen years ago, the Kerrville Morning Rotary initiated a program to annually distribute dictionaries to area students. Since then, the list of recipient schools has grown and two years ago the club added the students at Covenant Academy in Kerrville and Harper ISD as recipients.


In December, Kerrville Morning Rotarians distributed dictionaries to 52 enthusiastic Harper ISD sixth grade students. The dictionaries are for the students to keep for personal use in order to help them in their studies and to prepare them for their future careers.

Nancy Randle-Riley, Kerrville Morning Rotary Secretary, coordinated the event. "It’s most gratifying to see and hear the excitement from the children when they receive a dictionary of their very own," said Randle-Riley. She noted that a card from a Harper dictionary recipient stated, "I really like the dictionary. I will probably have it forever until it gets really old and turns into dust. Thank you!"

"The Harper 6th grade students loved receiving their new dictionaries from the Kerrville Morning Rotary Club. It was a special gift to receive right before the holidays, and the students use them in class or at home each day. We are thankful that the Rotarians included us in their dictionary drive again this year," said Harper 6th Grade Language Arts Teacher, Amy Randle
