New First Lady makes reading a priorityby Dara Kam | December 30th, 2010
Florida’s new first lady Ann Scott is asking inauguration celebrants to bring a new or “gently used” children’s book to the governor’s mansion to promote reading.
Scott will officially become the state’s first lady on Tuesday after her husband Rick is sworn in as Florida’s 45th governor.
Ann Scott and Volunteer USA are conducting the book drive for youth organizations and foster kids in Tallahassee, according to a press release issued by the governor-elect’s inaugural team today.
“Rick and I believe in family, strong values and the power of a good education. We believe in supporting our community and we spend a lot of time volunteering. That’s what we taught our daughters and that’s what we believe is important for the future of Florida,” Ann Scott said in the release.
Donors can drop off the books during the open house at the governor’s mansion on Tuesday.
