2019 Miss Ohio visits Jewish Community Center of Youngstown

Caroline Grace Williams of Mansfield, who was selected Miss Ohio 2019, visited the early learning center at the Jewish Community Center of Youngstown May 7, where she joined the children for the Shabbat service and read books to them. “The ELC values literacy as an incredibly important part of a child’s development,” said Hunter Thomas, early childhood and youth co-director, in a release. “Regularly reading aloud to children is one of the best ways for children to develop language and literacy, and we are so glad that Caroline was able to take time out of her busy schedule to visit us and experience the joys of Shabbat with us.”
