    Harrison County Middle School has offered the Reading Counts Program in seventh grade for 12 years under the direction of Tammy Bunch and Tamara King.
    Reading Counts is designed to encourage student reading at the middle school level.
    Throughout the school year, students read books and take comprehension tests on the computer. Books are assigned a point value based on reading level. The higher the reading level, the more points the book is worth. Each nine weeks, the top 13 students with the highest points are recognized and their photo appears in the Democrat.
