SEATTLE, WA–Star National Football League players and the skill of reading have something in common: for excellence to be achieved, individuals must set excellence as the goal.
Read Right Systems is pleased to congratulate Seattle Seahawk Russell Wilson on his well-deserved NFL title of Man of the Year. Based in Washington State, Read Right’s founder and many of our employees are long-time fans.
Congratulations, also, to Tom Brady for his seventh Super Bowl victory. While Tom’s is an unparalleled achievement, Russell’s title of Man of the Year has a different purpose. It honors commitment to community and social justice. The honor recognizes individuals who go above and beyond expectations to make communities better places to live.
That’s what Read Right seeks to do, too. Our goal has never been “a little bit of measurable improvement” in reading. Our goal for forty years has been total elimination of every reading problem. We prepare struggling readers and dyslexics for success in college. We prepare students with ADD/ADHD, Autism spectrum disorders, Tourette’s and Down’s syndrome, and more to read excellently at levels matching their intelligence. We are successful because the unique methods we use are the methods used by expert athletes and musicians to hone their skills.
We cannot compare to the accomplishments Mr. Wilson and Mr. Brady have achieved as athletes. But, in a time when two-thirds of all American students read at a basic level or below (and it has been this way for more than 20 years), we can make a difference in the lives of millions of individuals, ages 5 to 75.
Excellence is the key. Congratulations again, Mr. Wilson and Mr. Brady on your achievements in athletic and community excellence!
