ON UNL CAMPUS FOR 1-ON-1 TUTORING
A major gift to the University of Nebraska Foundation has resulted in a new name for the remedial reading center in the Home Economics Building on East Campus at UNL. It's the Kit and Dick Schmoker Reading Center:
The Schmokers graduated in the 1960s and live in Edina, Minn. Their git pays for salaries, outreach services, equipment, scholarships and fellowships for college students involved in reading education.
N.U.'s future teachers tutor children at the center to apply what they're learning in their undergraduate and graduate courses.
The center serves students who read one to three years below grade level. So far, nearly 300 students in elementary, middle and high schools have been aided.
