To celebrate Read Across America Day, Miss East Georgia State College (EGSC) Anita Cerpovicz visited two second grade classes at Swainsboro Primary School. Dr. Paul Cerpovicz, a professor at EGSC, also visited with Anita on March 1.
Anita read “The Magic School Bus Inside a Beehive” to the students. She and Dr. Cerpovicz had an observation hive with them for students to view and gave each student pollinator activity sheets, stickers, and honey sticks. Two books, “The Magic School Bus Inside a Beehive” and “What is Pollination?” were donated to each of the classroom teachers and to Livia Daniel for the school’s media center.
The visit was in conjunction with the Swainsboro Kiwanis Club, the EGSC Bee Campus USA affiliation, and the Miss EGSC Scholarship Pageant. Each Miss EGSC has a platform and community service project they fulfill during their year of service. Anita’s platform is about the importance of pollinators.
