February 28, 2006

In recognition of this accomplishment, Thompson paid special visits to three classrooms of Read to Achieve students in grades one through five. During each classroom visit, Alicia read aloud to the students from Salt In His Shoes, a story about Michael Jordan’s early years, and talked to the students about the importance of reading.

During the Q&A session at the end of each classroom visit, some lucky students had the chance to win Storm & Sonics prizes. In keeping with the mission of Read to Achieve, every student received a Read to Achieve prize pack including brand-new book of their own.
