City announces new summer reading program

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -

A new reading program will be available for kids in the city of Jackson beginning this summer.

The city made the announcement Friday morning during a kindergarten graduation ceremony at Westside Community Center in Jackson.

The program is a partnership with Dr. Jeannine Herron, an educational software developer from California.

Students in the city's summer recreation program and early childhood education program will learn how to read and write.

"This program will allow us to be able to maintain all of the skills and the work that students have done during the year and actually allow them to grow more over the summer," said Dr. Robert Blaine, Chief Administrative Officer for the City of Jackson.
