"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader." - John Quincy Adams

Yasmeen began participating in the Community Storehouse Youth Leadership Development Program during high school. She volunteered four hours a week with the Community Storehouse Office during her senior year. This year, as a college freshman, Yasmeen has continued to give her time and talent by volunteering at seasonal events like Christmas House and participating in the Leaders are Readers component of the After School Reading Program at North Riverside Elementary School. North Riverside alum, Yasmeen was happy to participate in this program as a guest reader. Guest readers recognize that it is never too early for students to be exposed to different fields, to learn that reading is a part of all occupations, and that community members recognize that reading is vital and exciting.
Leaders are Readers participants this year included: Dr. Monica Mathur, Chief Medical Officer, Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Alliance; Dr. Randy Reid, KISD Superintendent; Dr. Allen Goben, President Tarrant County College NE; Scott Hoover Stier, District Director - Rep. Matt Krause; and Chief James Brandon, Southlake Police Department.

Thank You All!
For showing us that Leaders Are Readers!
