Dozens of volunteer readers visited classrooms Tuesday at Carney Acadamy in New Bedford, as part of the "Reading Is Fundamental" program. 


Elected officials including State Rep. Keiko Orrall (above), business leaders, former Mayors, and current Mayor Jon Mitchell were among the readers.  School Prinicipal Karen Treadup applauds those volunteers who made some time to read.

One of the readers was Karen Treadup's boss, acting School Superintendent Michael Shea.....

Among the readers was WBSM's Jim Phillips, Taylor Cormier, and talk show host Phil Paleologos.
