Former Gamecocks promote literacy at GMS
GILBERT, S.C. — Former Gamecock football players Langston Moore and Preston Thorne proved they are not “just a chicken” during a visit to Gilbert Middle School.
Motivating the middle schoolers to enjoy reading, the authors stopped by GMS with their book “#JustaChicken.” They inspired students with the story of how they wrote and published the children’s book, reminding them that “reading is power” and encouraging them to “be a producer and not just a consumer in life.”
Funding from the GMS library and GMS Parent Teacher Student Association made the special author visit possible.
