We know reading is the fundamental building block for all learning and a child’s long-term success. This program is a perfect example of how we can support education initiatives that have a lasting impact on our future workforce.

“I do not know what I like better — the lights coming back on after a major storm or the lights in children’s eyes throughout South Carolina when I have the privilege to participate in Cocky’s Reading Express. Once Cocky appears and acts out the book I am reading, the excitement for reading is contagious. Each child is rewarded with a free book and sticker after they make a promise to Cocky to read every day. I love to read to future engineers, linemen, gas journeyman and electricians who get their start through a promise to Cocky to read.”
