Sarasota Christian School students recently held a contest to determine which school employee would “Go Crazy for Reading.” Throughout the school’s book fair, students were able to cast a vote with each book purchased to determine which teacher or administrator would have to do the crazy thing for which they volunteered.
The votes were close between Bible teacher Brad Graber, who volunteered to shave his head, and Superintendent Jeff Shank, who offered to move his office to the school’s roof for a day. The students cast their votes, and Shank made good on his promise to relocate to the roof. The contest, which was designed to promote enthusiasm about reading, sold more than 385 books.
