Norcross Mayor's Book Club
Jump on Board the Literacy Train
Help Our Kids Get Hyped About Reading This Summer
Norcross Mayor Bucky Johnson is an extraordinary champion for literacy. His Book Club is just one way he personally supports quality public education and strives to help every child in Norcross receive the tools he or she needs to succeed as an adult.
By leveraging the enthusiasm most kids show when they meet this charismatic community leader, the Mayor hopes to motivate children to check out books on their summer reading list.
"Literacy skills are closely linked to the probability of having a good job, decent earnings, and access to training opportunities," explains Johnson. "Our teachers set rigorous standards during the school year, so growing those skills during summer vacation puts the kids that much ahead when they return to school in the fall."
