Foster Grandparents Make a Difference

Aiken's Foster Grandparent, Frank Hunter, gave the students a treat as the school year near its end. Grandpa Hunter's son, Douglas Hunter, along with family friend Lon D'Andrea, brought their dune buggies to school. Students asked lots of questions about the engine, safety, and top speeds.      

The idea for such a visit stemmed from an earlier incident in which Grandpa Hunter was to read with a student who was having a rough day and wouldn't crack a grin.  When the older volunteer saw the youngster had brought two books about dune buggies, he knew he could make a lasting connection - and make the youngster smile.

"I'm coming back next year," says Grandpa Hunter. "I love reading with these kids."
