LANA SHELTON LOWE, principal of Dogwood Elementary School!

I had quite a number of people responding to this month’s blog post…via Twitter, Linkedin, and Facebook, but unfortunately none of those people actually left their name in the comment section which was the requirement in order to have their name added to this month’s drawing. Because I received no actual names, this month I will donate June’s book bundle to one of my local elementary schools I work with. I’ll be sending Ms. Lowe a Facebook message letting her know I will be delivering her FREE books as I visit the school in August when the kids go back to school.
