Last week, students at Westside were entertained and motivated to explore their imaginations. Tyler Whitesides, author of the renowned book Janitors, shared how his experience as a janitor helped him with ideas for his book. Later in the assembly, Tyler helped draw tickets with the names of students who met their reading goal. Students were awarded prizes through the Ken Garff reading program.
