Campbell visited with students and presented them with a book of their own for Christmas from the Rudolph’s Readers program. The event, which has become a holiday tradition at Carr, is generally hosted by Robbie Rudolph, one of the founders of the foundation, but he was unable to be at the book delivery event this year. According to the Four Rivers Foundation web site, believing that strong reading skills lead to success Rudolph and his wife, Lisa, created Rudolph’s Readers which gives a free book to children in the four elementary schools the foundation serves – Fulton Independent, Fulton County, Hickman County and Carlisle County. Since 2010, the web site explained, over 1000 books have been purchased and distributed to students prior to their holiday break. Students are encouraged to read the books, share them with their siblings or exchange them with students in their class in order to foster a strong reading culture in their homes and school. Also visiting Carr was Dianne Owen, director of the foundation, and Terry Sullivan, principal of the Fulton County Area Technology Center.
