THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Some of Georgia's leaders are kicking off Georgia Pre-K week by reading to young students.
Representative Darlene Taylor went to several classes at Harper Elementary in Thomasville Monday to read to Pre-K students.
Taylor said she always enjoys meeting these young students who are the future of our community.
"Hopefully reading will be fundamental to them. I grew up with it being fundamental. This is opening doors to kids, getting them interested. You can go anywhere in the world inside a book. I want kids to learn that," said Taylor.
This year is the 25th anniversary of the Pre-Kindergarten program in Georgia.
