BALTIMORE - The school system has launched the city's first Ben Carson Reading Project - with a new reading room - at Windsor Hills Elementary in West Baltimore.

Friday's dedication was attended by school officials and Dr. Ben Carson, neurosurgeon and co-founder and president of the Carson Scholars Fund, which sponsored the project.

The Annie E. Casey Foundation has awarded a grant to the Carson Scholars Fund to establish Ben Carson reading rooms in six other city schools.
