Bringing literacy to those in need isn’t just a cause that adults rally behind! This year, our National Junior Honors Society members here at Bernotas Middle School stepped up for this extremely worthy cause as well. Our members chose A to Z Literacy because of its ongoing mission to supply not just books, but continuing education for Zambia’s teachers, as well as funding a much needed lunch program. As an organization we realize that these things that are so readily available to us, are a much needed resource for the teachers and students we hope to reach in Zambia. Our membership organized a walk-a-thon fundraiser, collected pledges and walked for this valuable cause. Through our efforts, we were proud to be able to donate over $3,000 to A to Z Literacy. Our membership looks forward to the opportunity to do this again next school year!
