PHARR – Berta Palacios Elementary Librarian Linda Hinojosa has been awarded the $1,000 H-E-B Read 3 prize that will be used to purchase books for students during upcoming campus literacy events.

H-E-B launched its statewide literacy program called Read 3 in 2011 with the goal of getting parents and/or guardians to read to their children three times a week for at least 30 minutes. 

Hinojosa plans to use the prize money for campus events like Bingo for Books and their Dr. Seuss Literacy Carnival. She is hoping students will be able to increase their reading comprehension and maximize their reading skills with all the new books they will have access to. 

“I was surprised when I received the news on our most recent prize, but I was also extremely happy,” Hinojosa said. “I would like to thank our PSJA Library Director Mrs. Nora Galvan for the support she has shown me. She has always encouraged librarians to apply for grants that will benefit our students.”

A representative with H-E-B will be visiting Palacios Elementary in late November to deliver the $1,000 check.
