cPort President and CEO reads to students at Riverton Elementary School.

Monday, March 2 is National Read Across America Day.

This morning, cPort President & CEO Gene Ardito participated in Read Across America Day by sharing a story with 5th graders at Riverton Elementary School in Portland. cPort has been a proud community partner of Riverton since 2008.

Riverton Elementary School is a participant in cPort’s Scholarship Program. Last week we facilitated our scholarship essay writing workshop at Riverton where 4th and 5th graders were encouraged to start thinking about their college aspirations.

Over the next couple of weeks students will work on completing their essays, allowing them to work on both their reading and writing skills!
