ST. CLOUD, MN— The St. Cloud Rox Baseball Club announced today that its Reading Program achieved record-breaking numbers for the 2022-23 school year with approximately 16,102 students from 43 area elementary-middle schools taking part that involves 770 classrooms in 26 different cities throughout the Central Minnesota region.

Teaming up with Magnifi Financial for the 12th consecutive year, the Rox Reading Program has now brought in just over 117,000 students during this span. There are incentives for the students, teachers, and the schools that will participate in the four- week program during the month of April.

“The Rox Reading Program is helping inspire thousands of kids to read outside of the classroom and has never been stronger,” said Scott Schreiner, Co-Owner and Managing Partner for the Rox. “It’s truly a team effort between not only the students and Rox staff, but teachers, parents, school support staff, and administrators. Of course, the program isn’t where it is today without Magnifi Financial who has been a partner with the Rox Reading Program since the inception of the program.”

“We are proud to support the students and local schools throughout Central Minnesota through the Rox Reading Program,” said Gary Meyer, Senior Vice President of Retail Banking at Magnifi Financial.

Magnifi Financial proudly supports the Reading Program and offers incentives for participating students and teachers. One lucky student who completes their weekly reading goals will receive $250 towards a Magnifi Financial savings account. Magnifi Financial also provides two $250 Visa Gift Cards to help teachers buy new classroom books, plus a $1,000 cash prize for one school to upgrade their library programs, equipment, and supplies.

“Encouraging students to read outside the classroom is essential for developing creativity, imagination, and communication skills, which will equip them for a successful future,” said Meyer.
