MILLEDGEVILLE — Community volunteers and advocates for education contributed their time to read to pre-k and elementary students at Baldwin County public schools Thursday as part of the Jumpstart’s Read for the Record campaign.

As schools and communities across the country read “Otis” by Loren Long, local volunteer readers included representatives from the Baldwin County Board of Education, Baldwin High School GIVEs, Baldwin County Commission, Georgia Power, Century Bank & Trust, Rotary Club, Georgia College Community Health Department, Louie Herron Toyota, Ocmulgee Casa and Rep. Rusty Kidd.

Southside Equipment and the Board of Education provided tractors at the Early Learning Center for children to enjoy and tie in the story of Otis the lovable tractor.

Communities In Schools of Milledgeville-Baldwin County coordinated the event once again this year.
