Excited About Reading

Students at McKinley-Brighton look through new books during OCC’s Book Fair.

OCC presented its first of two books fairs at McKinley-Brighton Elementary School on November 6. Students were given the opportunity to select a brand new book to take home as part of the “Bobcats Read” community reading project. Another book fair will be held in the spring. Between the two fairs McKinley-Brighton Elementary students will receive approximately 1,300 new books! Both book fairs are made possible thanks to the generosity of the Delta Kappa Gamma Educational Foundation, the OCC Foundation and the OCC’s Barnes & Noble Bookstore.

This is the second year of a partnership between OCC and students at McKinley-Brighton which brings College Administrators, Faculty and Students to the school regularly to share academic and life lessons. The goal of the program is to help students start thinking about career opportunities and higher education at a younger age. During this academic year OCC added Meachem Elementary and J.T. Roberts PreK-8 School to the partnership.
