1 min read

Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s LeVar Burton is to be honored by Tufts University with an award on February 3.

The award to be bestowed upon Burton is the Eliot-Pearson Award for Excellence in Children’s Media.

“LeVar Burton is a natural choice as he is a true children’s literary expert,” said Julie Dobrow, director of the communications and media studies at Tufts University. “Through his exceptional career he has helped to promote reading comprehension in elementary- school-age children through the medium of television.”

Burton was the host of Reading Rainbow for twenty-six years.

Burton will receive his award on February 3 at 10 A.M. in the Distler Performance Hall. The public may attend the free ceremony.
