Taylor Michigan Press Conference at

Myers Elementary School 2016

A press conference was held on Thursday, October 27th, 2016, at 10:00 a.m. to announce the partnership between The Taylor Reading Corps (TRC) and Beyond Basics. The press conference was held at Myers Elementary School, 16201 Lauren St., Taylor, MI 48189. The Taylor Reading Corps (TRC) has partnered with Beyond basics in an effort to improve reading scores in the Taylor School District.

“Enhancing education through reading and writing is key to the success of the students in the Taylor School District, ” said 23rd District Court Judge Geno Salomone, President of The Taylor Reading Corps.

His mission is to enhance learning opportunities for district students through the recruitment, training and sustainment of a network of volunteers.

“There is a direct correlation between a person’s lack of education and the increased probability of becoming a defendant in court,” Judge Salomone said.

This new partnership between The Taylor Reading Corps and Beyond Basics would not be possible without significant financial support of their community partners – McKinley Properties; The PNC Foundation; The Taylor Community Development Corporation and the Taylor School District.
