  • She read to schoolchildren as part of her literacy campaign

She read books to 20 kids from kindergarten through fourth grade at Ascension Catholic School during their summer camp.

The goal of her campaign is to get students to read as many books as they can over their vacation to improve literacy skills. Scott is visiting as many schools around the state as she can.

Scott made an impression on the group.

"I think it was pretty great and special that she came to our school," said Zane Vilardebo, a fifth-grader at the school. "Reading is important because it helps you get a good education and get a good job."
