MIMS, Fla. -- A Central Florida school principal made good on a promise Friday to eat a bowl of worms if his students read a certain number of books.
Earlier this year, Pinewood Elementary principal George Nolan developed a point system to motivate his students to read.
Nolan said that he would eat several worms if the students could reach 20,000 points during the school year. This week, the students surpassed the total.
Nolan ate the bowl of worms with ketchup in front of an excited student body. He said it was worth it to get his students to pick up the books, according to Local 6 News.
