BARRON, Wis. (WEAU) -- A love of reading is something many develop while in school,
and one local teacher wants more books to help that love grow within his students.

Barron High School English teacher Ryan Hayes nominated his class in our Schools Rule! contest.

Thursday Gordy's Guru Matt Selvig and WEAU's Nikki Junewicz presented him with $3,000 in Box Tops for Education, courtesy of General Mills.

Mr. Hayes says his class is in desperate need of some new books to expand their library. He also wants to get some more comfortable reading chairs.

Students will also get to make requests for the new additions to their classroom.

"Finding enjoyment in reading, I believe and my coworkers believe, is finding the right book that matches their personality and once we do that and try to find an author they enjoy it gets a lot easier," explains Hayes.
