Second-grader from Wyoming Area Catholic wins WVIA Summer Reading Challenge

You can see the excitement on 7-year-old Morgan Madar’s face when the second-grader at Wyoming Area Catholic School raised her hand in response to Mrs. Paddock-Kaminski’s question about where she was in the auditorium. Young Morgan didn’t realize she was about to be honored as a winner in WVIA’s 2018 Summer Reading Challenge Award, but Kiersten Smith from the local PBS affiliate came to her school on Monday afternoon to present a framed certificate in honor of her spending more than 1,100 minutes reading over the summer. Eight PBS stations across Pennsylvania participated in the challenge, Smith said, and children across the state recorded in work books how many minutes per day they spent reading. Morgan is the daughter of Colleen and John Madar of West Wyoming. Another little girl, Vivian Sedlack from Susquehanna County also read for more than 1,100 minutes, Smith said. She and Morgan are both winners in the Kindergarten through second grade division of the contest. - Tony Callaio | For Times Leader
