KRWG Public Media proudly partnered with New Mexico State University, Western New Mexico
University, Ngage New Mexico, and the SUCCESS Partnership in support of Jumpstart's “Read for the
Record” initiative, promoting early literacy on Saturday, October 30th at the KRWG-TV studios on the
This year's featured book was Amy Wu’s “The Patchwork Dragon.”
Between Silver City and in Las Cruces, over 1100 kids participated in readings, with roughly 550 books
distributed free to area children.
Families had an opportunity to visit KRWG-TV to participate in the reading of “The Patchwork Dragon,”
tour the station, and to have their picture taken with Super WHY! at the Las Cruces event.
Judging by the success of the program, KRWG Public Media looks forward to doing it again.
About the SUCCESS Partnership
Access to equitable education opportunities continues to be a problem in New Mexico. The SUCCESS
Partnership is a prenatal-to-career education initiative committed to transforming education outcomes
in Doña Ana County so that all children have a foundation from which to thrive in school and life. The
data-driven work of the partnership is fueled by the passion and understanding that “Education is a
Shared Responsibility,” and change happens when we use a collective impact approach, bringing
together cross-sector partners to work towards this common goal. The partnership believes that
investing in education from pregnancy until the child enters the workforce is key to empowering and
uplifting the person and our community. Four backbone agencies support the SUCCESS Partnership:
Ngage New Mexico, NMSU Center for Community Analysis, Community Action Agency of Southern New
Mexico, and La Clinica de Familia. For more information about the SUCCESS Partnership, contact
