DETROIT (June 12, 2018) – Having already launched a pair of his signature Literacy Lounges in February, Pistons Guard Reggie Jackson was back in the community again on Monday to unveil his sixth Literacy Lounge at Bagley Elementary. Located just north of downtown Detroit, Bagley Elementary is the latest Title I school to receive a state-of-the-art reading oasis courtesy of Reggie Jackson’s DETermined to Assist Foundation.
 
Bagley’s students formed a high five line in anticipation of Reggie’s arrival, warmly welcoming the star basketball player to their school. Once in the newly-christened Literacy Lounge, Reggie fielded questions from the students, spoke at length about the importance of reading and education, and even read a Curious George story to the attendees.
 
Reggie was joined by the school’s administration, representatives from presenting sponsor Tata Technologies, and two lucky students to cut the ribbon and officially open the new Literacy Lounge. The Lounge offers 600 age-appropriate books, comfortable seating, and exciting graphics of Reggie playing basketball on the walls.
 
Tata Technologies, who was the primary funder of the program, also sent volunteers to assist in the renovation and installation of the reading room. The Bagley Elementary Literacy Lounge will provide literacy enrichment to over 440 students on an annual basis.
