The Brevard Rotary Club presents a dictionary to every third grader in Transylvania County.

As part of Rotary's emphasis on literacy, copies were given to Brevard Elementary, Pisgah Forest Elementary, Rosman Elementary, Brevard Academy, T.C. Henderson Elementary and Sunshine Freedom School. Copies will also be made available, upon request, to third-grade home school children

"The third grade is a critical time in a student's language development and these dictionaries give every child an equal chance to improve their word skills," said Brevard Rotary Club President Sammy Kicklighter.
