PCYS launches new reading program with Pulaski County Special School District

Pulaski County Youth Services launched a new program titled “Leadership Through Literacy.” This program was created to provide community leaders an opportunity to read to elementary school students throughout the county. The program aims to inspire youth by exposing them to different types of leaders in various job roles. The leader will read to the students and share a little about themselves. Pulaski County Youth Services will also make a book donation to the school library.

Today we kicked off Black History Month by having Pulaski County Judge Barry Hyde and Pulaski County Special School District Superintendent Dr. Charles McNulty, read books to the Pre-K students at Daisy Bates Elementary. The students were excited to hear stories featuring African American characters and authors.

It was a great kickoff!
