The Greenwich United Way Reading Champions Volunteers were recently honored and serenaded by The Chamber Players of the Greenwich Symphony during the symphony’s 10th anniversary season finale concert titled “Transcendent Song.”
“Greenwich United Way tutors, board members and staff enjoyed a truly spectacular performance,” said Champions Program Coordinator Cecile Meunier. “It was an honor to partner with this special event to mark the occasion and the program’s widespread commitment to enhancing reading fluency. More than 400 public elementary school students benefit each year with the help of over 100 volunteers.”
The concert program featured a selection of classical Chamber music at Round Hill Community Church, where Christine Boies, president of the Chamber Players, welcomed the Greenwich United Way and recognized the Reading Champion Program.
Dan Haugh, associate pastor of the church, gave his experience of volunteering within the program. “It is a pleasure being a reading champions’ volunteer tutor, the impact that this program provides volunteers is so rewarding. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with the students I tutor,” said Haugh.
Following the concert at a reception David Rabin, CEO of the Greenwich United Way, offered a toast to the Reading Champions Volunteers and elaborated on the success of the reading fluency program.
