Bob Crow, managing partner of Mercedes-Benz of Medford and the Smart Center of Medford, has joined the state board of directors for SMART — Start Making a Reader Today.
Crow, who moved to the Rogue Valley from Texas in 2011, previously was involved in a similar Texas reading/mentorship program. SMART connects community members with students in pre-school through third grade to help them with their reading skills.
Crow is also a member of the Rogue Valley Leadership Chapter of SMART. Crow goes on the state board for SMART as Patsy Smullin and Bob Hunter, both of Medford, step down from the board.
