Reading Program

Troy University has partnered with two schools in the Phenix City, Alabama, community to provide readers to share stories with local children on Thursday mornings. This program is designed to encourage interest and showcase the benefits of how reading can be an enriching and, best of all, fun activity! We are always looking for more readers to help with this program. Please contact Katelyn for more information at kkilpatr@troy.edu.
