Third-grader Kennedy Cole has earned her spot on Minden Elementary's Reading Counts Wall of Fame.
The nine-year-old accumulated 1,001 points, the most points in her school, during the Scholastic Reading Counts program.
"I thought it was really great. I was excited. I read over 3 million words," Kennedy said. "My first goal was to get 400 points, but I passed that really early in the year, and I wanted a harder goal so I went for 1,000."
Scholastic Reading Counts is an independent reading program for Grades K-12 which combines reading practice and software-based reading assessment.
