First Lady Ann Scott Visits North Hamilton Elementary

February 10, 2014

On Friday, January 17, 2014, First Lady Ann Scott visited North Hamilton Elementary as part of Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida!  The school was the final stop on her statewide tour to promote the importance of reading.  This year’s theme, “Reading Accelerates Success,” encouraged students to connect the value of literacy with careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Principal Lee Zamora, along with students and staff, welcomed the First Lady to North Hamilton’s campus.  Also in attendance were Superintendent Moffses and school board members Damon Deas, Jeanie Daniels, and Sammy McCoy.

Following the visit, Mrs. Zamora stated, “It was an honor to have First Lady Ann Scott visit North Hamilton Elementary.  She was wonderful with our students, and the students really enjoyed having the First Lady read to them!”  Assistant Principal Peggy Hasty remarked, “Meeting the First Lady was an awesome experience!  She is a very gracious lady, and it was exciting to have her visit with our faculty, staff, and students.”


Second-grade student Bailey Driggers added, “The experience of having First Lady Scott come to our school and read to us was amazing and was once-in-a-lifetime!  She is very friendly, and I am so glad she chose our school because it is a special place.  It was an honor.”


Superintendent Moffses shared, “Our students had a wonderful opportunity to meet First Lady Ann Scott on her reading tour of Florida.  It was a great experience for our students as the First Lady read to them as part of Florida’s Literacy Week.”

Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida!  is an annual event to commemorate the accomplishments of students and to also inspire them to keep reading.  As part of the week’s festivities, thousands of volunteers visited the schools throughout the state and read to the students.
