Endgame for Illiteracy: MPW heroes reward Hebron Elementary readers

MPW knows them as Videographer Boone McAdams and Mechanic Mike Fairburn, but on April 10 they had different job titles: The Amazing Spider-Man and Captain America, respectively.

McAdams and Fairburn coordinated with Director of Philanthropy & Community Engagement, Kristen Black, to make a surprise appearance at Hebron Elementary School as part of the school’s Superhero Day festivities. The “super-reader” children were permitted to dress as their favorite superhero to celebrate their mastery of sight words. Amid the swishing of tiny capes and such questions as “is your shield even real?” Spider-Man and Captain America congratulated the kids on a job well done and made sure to stress that like fighting crime, learning how to read requires dedication and hard work.
