Florida’s First Lady Ann Scott, the Florida Department of Education, the
Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and the Florida Department of
State are teaming up to encourage reading during the summer break. The Summer
Literacy Adventure, launched in May by the First Lady, invites students to
pledge to read a certain number of books this summer. Mrs. Scott will share a
short reading passage with students while Wakulla Springs State Park Manager
Brain Fugate and Florida Park Service Director Donald Forgione highlight various
aspects of Wakulla Springs.
A select school with the most participating students in the Summer Literacy
Adventure will be recognized during the 2011-12 school year, and the Department
of Environmental Protection will also reward the winning school with a free pass
to any state park.
