FLORENCE, SC (WBTW) – Wilson High students read to Timrod Elementary classes as a part of the “Read to Succeed Program.”  In keeping with South Carolina’s Comprehensive Reading Reform Policy, Carrie Simmons, Literacy Coach at Timrod, initiated a Read-to-Succeed Reading Buddies Program to assist students in reading.

In partnerships with Francis Marion University’s softball team, retired veteran teachers, and Wilson High School students, Timrod’s students are receiving state-required Tier II and Tier III intervention services and support from a combination of highly-effective partners.  These partnerships serve as an additional resource to promote literacy beyond the classroom for Timrod’s students.
