Koinonia Christian School Grade 6 student Susanna Lauzon, 12, accepts a certificate from Red Deer mayor Morris Flewwelling at the school on Wednesday.

Lauzon, along with nine of her classmates, participated in a summer reading program called the “Key to the City” where the students visited various locations around the city over the summer and read a number of books that related to places they visited.

Past school librarian Joan Johnson, shown on the left, was also in attendance. While at the event Mayor Flewwelling related his experience reading at a young age, stating the only books he had to read before he went to school were some encyclopedias that were 40 years old at the time.

He went on to stress that reading is fundamentally important in a modern world.
