Crissy Haslam joins Hamblen Co. kids in reading program

Tennessee's First Lady went back to school and got in some reading in Morristown on Tuesday.

Crissy Haslam is promoting the "Read20" program, which tries to get kids to read for at least 20 minutes a day during the summer.

Union Heights is one of the leading schools in the program, with more than 100 kids achieving the 20 minute plateau.  They got a medal for their accomplishment.

Haslam says reading is key to succeeding in and out of the classroom and, like everything else, it's all about practice
