Apurba Roy, who just finished the seventh grade at Grady Middle School, has been named the fourth “Reader Leader” by myON for logging the most time spent reading on that website during a particular month.

Roy read for an astonishing 219 hours and 34 minutes in myON in May. As a part of her prize, Roy received a laptop (with computer case) from Muses3, LLC, the representative of myON in southeast Texas. She was formally recognized during a special ceremony held on her campus June 4.

“May was an incredible race for the Reader Leader Award,” said Linda Bessmer, managing partner with Muses3. “Competition across the district was terrific and two students at Grady read for more than 100 hours each.”

“Last month’s winner, Prabin Panta, nearly doubled his time from April, but still came in second to Apurba for May,” added Muses3 partner Carl Franklin. “They are tremendous competitors and we apologize for any sleep they lost this past month while reading on myON.”
