$70,000 in Math Textbooks Donated to Fort Berthold Indian Reservation
Reader to Reader is pleased to announce that $70,000 in new Basic Mathematics textbooks have been donated to schools on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in North Dakota. The donation was made possible through a generous donation by author Steve Slavin.
“On behalf our college, please accept our thanks and appreciation for these wonderful books,” mathematics professor Bernadine Young Bird said. “72 boxes were delivered to the Fort Berthold Community College today. We have a GED program, student services tutoring, five high schools, seven libraries, a juvenile justice center, as well as for our college math foundations level courses that can utilize these text books to help our students work on their basic math skills. They will be used to assist many students and adults of all ages. We certainly appreciate the Reader to Reader organization for this wonderful gift and all of your wonderful work.”
