(Franklin, GA) — Law enforcement officers with the Franklin Police Department recently visited Ephesus Elementary School, Heard Elementary School, and Connie’s Little Loves, where they read to the children that were celebrating National Read Across America Day.

Although this annual event takes place on March 2nd, which is Dr. Seuss’s birthday, educators and students recognized this special day by celebrating the entire week.

During the event, children at the schools celebrated with dress up days; as well as, visits from a variety of special guests who read to them.

Chief Kevin Hannah, Sergeant Tim Rowley, and Officer Nikki Chapman of the Franklin Police Department were very excited to be a part of this celebration and greatly enjoyed spending time with the staff and students at each location.

“This was a great opportunity for us to educate students of the many job duties law enforcement officers have while reading books to them,” said Chief Hannah. “I even had the opportunity to swap places with the students in one class and have them read to me which we all enjoyed. I would like to thank everyone for inviting us to attend and for the warm welcome we received.”

“It is always a pleasure to interact with the young ones. Participating in program like this allows us to continue building a positive rapport with the future leaders of our community. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity,” stated Officer Chapman.
