Role Models Read to Garfield Students

Twenty male role models, including Davenport Mayor Frank Klipsch, a firefighter, army officers, policemen, college professors, Davenport schools employees, and many others recently visited Garfield Elementary classrooms for an event called “Real Men Read.” The men spoke to the students about their jobs, required job-related education or training, and the importance of reading in their daily life. They then read a book to the students and donated it to the classroom.
