I’m Tracy Petersen, and I write The Bookworm. I’ve served on the Board of Directors for three years and I’m co-chair of the Special Events Committee. My goal in all these roles is to broadcast how amazing Everybody Wins! Iowa is. I’m always trying to think of new ways to raise our profile so we can attract more mentors and dollars to reach as many central Iowa students as possible. Every child deserves an adult who shows up again and again with nothing but love and support. The impact you can have in just 30 minutes a week is incredible. I also want to remind caring adults about how fulfilling mentoring is. It’s impossible to walk away from a half hour of reading with my students at Moore Elementary in Des Moines and Crestview School of Inquiry in Clive with anything but a smile on my face.
