  • Mary Brownback, the first lady of Kansas, hands ice cream treats to children in the SummerBoost Camp on Wednesday at Henry Leavenworth Elementary School. Brownback was fulfilling a promise made by her husband, Gov. Sam Brownback, when he visited the summer program last week. The governor promised to buy ice cream for the children if they continued to read. SummerBoost Camp is part of the Kansas Reading Roadmap program, a state initiative that focuses on improving children's reading proficiency. This is the final week of the camp.
