Book blessing: Local club receives large donation

November 6, 2017 GMT

Youngsters enrolled at the Corinth Boys and Girls Club will now be able to visit new worlds and meet new people — through books. The Boys and Girls Club of Corinth recently received a large donation of books from the Upsilon Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma — a professional honor society of women educators in the United States, Canada, Europe, Latin America and Japan. The Upsilon Chapter includes women educators from Tishomingo, Alcorn and Prentiss Counties and Upsilon member Mary Lynn Shadburn said the idea to donate books for the club came after a prior conversation with Boys and Girls Club Director Trecee Hughey.
