Author, pro football player read to Clara Oliver Elementary students


Pro football player Brandon Carr and children’s author Michelle Staubach Grimes visited Dallas ISD’s Clara Oliver Elementary School on Wednesday, April 18.

The two read to second- and third-graders in the school’s reading program, as well as helped honor the late Barbara Bush. Grimes donated autographed copies of her books, “Where is Pidge?” and “Pidge Takes the Stage” to the school.

Clara Oliver Elementary and South Oak Cliff High School are matched in the Carr Cares Foundation/Barbara Bush Foundation Teen Trendsetters reading mentoring program.

The foundation created by Carr, a former Dallas Cowboys player, has benefitted several Dallas ISD schools. Grimes is also the daughter of legendary Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach.
