Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson will visit a local school Wednesday as part of National Reading Month.

Johnson will visit Highland Elementary School in Highland Township at around 10am tomorrow. She’ll talk with students about the importance of having strong reading skills in observance of National Reading Month.

During the month of March, schools stress the importance of reading for future success in academics and in the workplace and invite guests in to read to children. Johnson plans to read the book “A Fish Out of Water” by Helen Palmer to four kindergarten classes. (JM)
