Second-graders at Hanson Elementary enthusiastically met a children’s author, a scientist/professor, a banana and a bunch of grapes in the school gym Wednesday afternoon.
Dr. Marvin Russell, a retired Western Kentucky University physics professor, has donated copies of the flip book, “Alexander and the Great Food Fight” and “Alexander and the Great Vegetable Feud,” for all 2nd-graders in Hopkins County Schools. The stories, written by Linda J. Hawkins, focus on food and nutrition. There was a hardback book for each Second Grade Teacher.
The formal presentation was made at Hanson school because Dr. Russell lives nearby at the Western Kentucky Veterans Center. He helped with the science included in one of Hawkins’ books, with his character going by the name “Dr. Energy.”
Thanks to both of them for this contribution to #TeamHopkins, which will encourage good nutrition and reading in our students!
