Gunrock, UC Davis’ mascot, is joined by Aggie gymnasts Whitney Estrada, a freshman, and Anna Shumaker, a senior, in reading to Nadine Hilden’s sixth-graders on Friday at Birch Lane Elementary School. Ready, Set, Read Day has been a school tradition for 16 years. It was started in 1998 by then-Birch Lane parents Brenda Mohr and Liz Allewelt-Smith as a day totally dedicated to reading. The students are invited to wear cozy clothes and to bring pillows, blankets and stuffed animals to help set the mood for relaxing and reading all day. Guest readers this year included not only Aggie athletes and Spirit Squad members but Mayor Pro Tem Dan Wolk, Board of Education member Susan Lovenburg, Davis firefighters, Associate Superintendent Clark Bryant and Sarah Hartman from Red Rover.
