Editorial: Actions speak louder

When Friends of Moffat County Education emerged last month, the nonprofit education support group had some fairly ambitious plans.

Not only would the group focus on “targeted funding initiatives for projects that we think are worthwhile,” as board member Jeremy Browning said, but it also had its first project lined out: collect enough used books and monetary donations by April 13 to donate 13,000 books to local students in preschool through fifth grade — an endeavor dubbed the 13-3 Book Project.

It appears members of the group aren’t just ambitious in planning — they’re also ambitious in execution.

This week, the group announced it had reached its goal, and that beginning next month local preschool through fifth-graders would each receive 10 free books to be distributed at respective schools throughout the Moffat County School District.
