Officer Blake Kenner of the Bellefontaine Police Department, right, reads a book with Bellefontaine Elementary School student Reagan Standley. Officer Kenner, along with Officer Roger Hager and Sgt. Ed Peters, each read to students in Christa Hammond’s first-grade classroom on a weekly basis through a new initiative that was started this school year. Reagan is a daughter of Bellefontaine Police Chief Brandon Standley, and Mrs. Hammond worked with the police chief to set up the arrangement. “The kids love reading with the officers each week,” Mrs. Hammond said.
