Wilson County Education Association held its 2nd Annual Book drive to promote Reading and community involvement.
The drive was to honor Dr. Seuss’ birthday and yielded more than twice as many books as last year.
The greater than 800 books were donated and given to the Pre-school classrooms of Wilson County Schools and the Child Advocacy Center.
Debra Daugherty and Lataka Officer joined Melody Engle on Friday, March 1 – Read Across America Day, to sort through the books for delivery. Teachers from Lebanon High School, Wilson Central High School, Lakeview Elementary, Southside Elementary, Stoner Creek Elementary, Tuckers Crossroads Elementary participated in hopes of winning a gas and food card for a needy family in their school. The Wilson County EA gave two gas and food cards to the winning elementary school, Stoner Creek Elementary, and high school, Lebanon High School for their greatest percentage of books to teacher ratio.
