Miss Lumbee heads literacy program at church

Lindsey Oxendine’s inspiration to organize a literacy and reading event stemmed from a conversation she had with the mother of a fourth-grade student. “She said her daughter was picked on and bullied at school because she was a slow reader,” said Oxendine, a junior at The University of North Carolina at Pembroke. “My heart was gripped with compassion for this young girl and her mother.” On Oct. 12, Lindsey Oxendine will join Arrow Educational Solutions to host a “Reading and Literacy Kickoff” event at Harvest Church in Rowland. The reading and literacy event is part of Lindsey Oxendine’s “Mentoring to Motivate” platform she adopted after being crowned Miss Lumbee this summer. Arrow Education
