A grant to be awarded later this week will recognize a first for a military post.

Senator Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, will be at Fort Riley Thursday to present a $3.3 million Early Reading First Grant to Geary County USD 475 and Ft. Riley's Child and Youth Services program, a reading cooperative in Geary County.

Roberts' office says it's the first time that a military post has allowed this
type of curriculum cooperation between its Child and Youth Services and a school district.

The grant will be used to implement a literacy curriculum for children ages 3-5 years-old, to expand the program to include more children and full-day, year-round classes and to provide professional development for early childhood educators.
