UPPER MARLBORO, Md. - NASA Federal Credit Union and Prince George's County Excellence in Education Foundation teamed up at Baltimore Orioles' AA affiliate Bowie's Baysox Stadium to kick off this Spring's fundraising event to put libraries inside classrooms throughout the County. NASA FCU President and CEO Douglas M. Allman threw the honorary first pitch at opening day where a portion of the proceeds from all ticket sales went to the Excellence in Education Foundation program. The two-game event raised more than $2,500. "Reading is the foundation for academic success and NASA Federal Credit Union is committed to supporting education in the communities we serve," said Allman. "We appreciate the opportunity to join other organizations and citizens who are working to improve classrooms and make learning a wonderful experience for the students in our area." Libraries Inside the Classroom Initiative is designed to provide a set of classroom library books to teachers and students in grades 4-9. Each classroom set contains 100 books and serves 66,000 students. The books are a combination of fiction and non-fiction at different reading levels and are designed to appeal to all readers including ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and Special Education students.
