To help honor J.W. Ray Elementary's "Top Readers", Representative Branch hosted the thirty 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students to lunch at Chili's Grill & Bar. Each of the students completed twenty or more books during the Fall 2007 semester and have continued their eager reading habits into the spring. J.W. Ray Principal Bernette Austin, who was also honored by Rep. Branch, created the Top Readers program as a part of her school-wide Earning by Learning efforts.
