Upon arrival at Bow Elementary, Jackson was greeted to a chorus of cheers and high-fives from students who lined the hallways, eager to greet the NBA star. After the warm welcome, Jackson headed to the school’s library to unveil his Literacy Lounge, and greet teachers, administrators, and students.
Dr. Darrius, of FM98 WJLB interviewed Jackson about his DETermined to Assist Foundation and the importance of this Literacy Lounge.
“I want you all to understand the importance of literacy and being a life-long learner. To be a good student, or a good basketball player, you have to always keep learning," said Jackson.
Jackson handed DETermined to Assist-themed bookmarks, encouraging the kids to keep reading and learning. He then sat down for an energetic reading of Curious George Joins the Team.
