The Iowa Afterschool Alliance was recognized along with several partners for our work to support early grade reading in Iowa. We are so honored for this, but it's not why we do it! Check out our new Literacy page for more on what we're doing to make sure our kids are reading and enjoy to read!
Iowa Afterschool Alliance staff and partners are photographed with The Honorable Terry E. Branstad (center), Governor of the State of Iowa, and Ralph Smith, director of the Campaign for Grade Level Reading (ninth in from the right). Partners named alongside the IAA as Pacesetters include United Way of Central Iowa, Child and Family Policy Center, and members of the Iowa General Assembly. Representatives from these organizations are also pictured above.
