On Friday, March 20, Dodge Elementary School held its annual Leadership Day, the culmination of Career Week activities.
Leadership Day at Dodge consists of dozens of area leaders--city officials, non-profit leaders, public employees, former teachers, civic volunteers--all converging on the west Mobile school at 8 in the morning to read to students and share information about their careers and roles in the community.
After a nice breakfast sponsored by the PTA and a welcoming speech by Dodge principal, Dr. Suzanne Crist, the eager readers met their student guides (so smart and well-mannered!) and went to their assigned classes to read a book selected by the teacher and to tell students a little about what they do.
Among the readers were Martha Peek, Mobile County School superintendent; artist Kathleen McCarron; and pictured above, from left, Kim Tillman, Elections Coordinator for Mobile County; Bess Rich, Mobile City Council member; Mike Wallace, Flight Training of Mobile and Walter Westmoreland.
