Elementary students thriving with guidance from high schoolers

Excerpt from WFAA.com

DALLAS — Every student at Nathan Adams Elementary in Dallas has big dreams and even bigger obstacles.

The school is in a high poverty area, and more than half the students can’t read at grade level.

“If a child can’t read by third grade, it really holds them back and that means as far as into college,” said Nathan Adams community liaison Micaela Luna Gomez said.
