    A 7th Grader’s Love of Reading Benefits Needy Students

    Zachary Golden, a seventh grade student at Pinckneyville Middle school, turned his love of reading into an act of generosity for other students in the Norcross Cluster.

    Zachary is the son of Deborah and Greg Golden in Peachtree Corners. For his Bar Mitzvah Project Zachary collected books by sending out an email to all his family, friends and his neighbors in Riverfield subdivision asking them to donate books to those who cannot buy them.

    He received a huge response for his efforts. Zachary collected 1,090 books and donated them to Better World Books.
    Then, Zach decided that he would like to match the amount of Barnes & Noble gift cards that he gave to each friend at the Bar Mitzvah. The matched funds were donated to the Norcross Mayor’s Book Club and literacy program.
    “He loves to read; so he felt that this would benefit those in his community who cannot afford books,” said his mother Deborah Golden. The NCSP and the Norcross Mayor are delighted to see such initiative and thoughtfulness from such a young leader. Zachary is truly a “literacy champ.”

    The Norcross Cluster Schools Partnership (NCSP) benefits the elementary and middle schools in Norcross and Peachtree Corners by collecting school supplies, books and providing grants to teachers. All but two schools in the cluster are Title I schools indicating a high poverty level, which at some schools is as high as 90%.

    While we know poverty does not translate into poor student scores; it is true that students from poverty level homes often do not have any books of their own. Zachary's contribution will enable NCSP to purchase books for these students.
