Dr. Devin Stephenson, president of Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC), and his wife, Judy, participated in Read Across America activities at Highland Elementary School on Friday, March 11.

Dr. Stephenson read stories to Machelle McClures third-grade class.

Its always exciting to read to children and see and hear their excitement about education, said Dr. Stephenson.

Students in the class asked questions about Dr. Stephensons role at the college, but the tide turned when students showed off the technology they utilize daily in their class.

It was amazing to see third graders using MAC computers and doing innovative things such as putting together presentations and even podcasts.

Dr. Stephenson personally invited the class to tour his office on the Prestonsburg campus and visit the East Kentucky Science Center and Varia Planetarium.
