Sheriff Jim Hammond to Participate in National Read Across America Day
Hamilton County, TN – In recognition of National Read Across America Day on Friday, March 2, 2018, Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Hammond and members of the Command Staff will be visiting various local elementary schools in an effort to read to students and encourage literacy. During this time, representatives from our local media are welcome and encouraged to attend.
The schools listed below have approved for media to participate and this would be a great opportunity to show our local community how law enforcement personnel are actively taking a role in promoting literacy and building positive relationships with our community’s children.
Even though Friday is National Read Across America Day, several HCSO personnel have already visited Orchard Knob Elementary to read and more will visit Hardy Elementary later in the week.
Below are the schools where Sheriff Hammond will be reading on Friday.
Signal Centers, Inc.
109 North Germantown Road
Clifton Hills Elementary School
1815 East 32nd Street

Once again, local media representatives are welcome and encouraged to attend any and all of the appointments listed above. Sheriff Hammond and other HCSO personnel will be available for interviews to discuss the importance of law enforcement participating in events like this in order to build positive relationships with our community’s children and to promote literacy.
