The “Reading for a Reason” fundraiser was created in memory of Ms. Georgia Williams, beloved English teacher at Nyack High School. Regretfully, she lost her battle with breast cancer in the spring of 2020. Volunteers will pledge to read a number of pages over the course of two months. The monetary donations collected from sponsors who support the volunteer’s reading goal will be used to make a donation in Ms. Williams’ name to the Sister’s Network, an organization that provides funds and support for African American Women with breast cancer. Thank you for your support.
