Fondren’s Boyd Elementary School is asking for volunteers for their book buddies program. Training is slated for Monday January 24 at 2:30pm. Boyd educators say participants only need to commit to one hour a week. They suggest coming on your lunch break or at any time convenient to you.  The program aims to help children progress in school. Book Buddy training will be given by Rebecca Starling of Jackson Public Schools. Contact Deborah Hanson at DHanson5@aol.com for more information. Boyd Elementary School is located at 4531 Broadmeadow Street.
