All 72 third graders at Botetourt Elementary were encouraged to set Accelerated Reader goals every quarter this year, which helped 25 of them to reach the 100-point milestone. Those with 100 points or more included, front row from left, Lilly Horsley, John McCloskey, Keegan Winter, Colin Walke, Jack VanFossen, Adam Isaksen, Braden Hudgins, Destiny Wheeler, Nathan Patterson; back row, David Tanner, Jeremiah Miles, Brendan Strickland, Brooke Waltz, Kailey Roark, Haley Faris, Kareena Ferguson, Chandler Johnson, Rebecca Hocker, Joel Junker, Brady Landry, Joshua Mayer and, not pictured, Joey Bollinger, Connor McDonald, Douglas Oliver and Peter Signorino. The prolific readers paced the third grade to more than 6,500 AR points and were treated to a pizza party and prizes by librarian Shannon Kerr. Photo by Kim Robins
