Future Educators Association Hosts Book Drive

Students enrolled in Teacher Academy, a new program at JDC Career Center, along with its student-led organization, Future Educators Association (FEA), are participating in a state-wide Service Learning Project this school year.    This project will help strengthen the local literacy programs.  Mrs. Lila Broom, Teacher Academy Instructor and FEA advisor, and her students have chosen to conduct a book drive.  
 
Books will be collected through donations and distributed to the districts local schools.  Mr. John Daley, Interim Superintendent, was kind enough to kick off the campaign by presenting Mrs. Broom with her first donation of books.  Daley thanked Mrs. Broom and her students for their time and efforts with this literacy project.  The Career Center will continue to take book donations for the month of October.  Any new or used book in good condition will be greatly appreciated.   Daley supports the Teacher Academy program’s efforts realizing the great benefit it will be to the students of Jefferson Davis County School District.
