Aiming for success

Coast Guard Petty Officer Dave Washburn, a volunteer with Coast Guard Sector Juneau's Partnership in Education, meets with the children of an Auke Bay Elementary class as part of their Novel Study Group. Each week, students are assigned to read then discuss the book with a volunteer in order to gauge their comprehension and understanding of the material. The program has been in effect since the start of the school year.
