As many as 43.5 million Americans may have dyslexia, and about 3.5 percent of students — slightly more than two million children — are receiving special educational services for a reading disorder.

The Dalles senior Bailey LeBreton chose not use her learning disability as an excuse or crutch – She finished her senior year with a 3.94 grade point average, and that accomplishment is an example to others that anything is possible as long as they press forward and make education a top priority.

LeBreton signed on to play volleyball and softball at George Fox University with an interior design major and a minor in organizational communications.

Last Wednesday at Wahtonka School in The Dalles, 75 local children were in action at the Elementary School Track and Field Meet on the campus of  Wahtonka High School at Sid White Field in The Dalles.

This meet is hosted by the physical education teachers at Chenowith, Dry Hollow and Colonel Wright, and students and high school track volunteers were on hand to teach the events and pass out ribbons, which were provided by the Colonel Wright and Dry Hollow PTO and PTA.
