Miss Door County Outstanding Teen fights back against dyslexia

Seeing Miss Door County Outstanding Teen Claire Bohn reading books to students with her crown has been a familiar sight depending on the area classroom you have visited. Since her reign began, she has championed the cause of fighting against dyslexia. The cause is special to her as her mother is a licensed speech therapist in Sturgeon Bay, and her brother fights dyslexia daily. One in five people struggles with dyslexia, often going undiagnosed and untreated in schools around the country. Bohn hopes that she can make a difference in the lives of so many students struggling to read in Door County with a bit of hard work.

She is encouraging you to donate money to the De Pere-based Bright Young Dyslexics to further guide her efforts. When you donate money to the organization and designate it for Door County, Bohn says the funds will return to the area and help kids locally. You can watch our full interview with Claire Bohn below.
