TARPON SPRINGS – While visiting Tarpon Springs on her Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! tour Jan. 15, First Lady Ann Scott was presented with a key to the City of Tarpon Springs by Mayor David Archie.

“I am honored to add the city of Tarpon Springs key – my first – to the Florida Governor’s Mansion’s collection,” Scott said. “It will serve as a fond reminder of this visit to Tarpon Springs and the wonderful students, teachers and staff I met today at Tarpon Springs Elementary School and I look forward to sharing it with our visitors.”

Scott has been visiting elementary and middle schools across the state since Gov. Rick Scott took office in 2011, hoping to promote reading and help students develop an appreciation for reading that will last a lifetime.

During her visit to Tarpon Springs, she read to more than 100 Tarpon Springs Elementary School first, second and fourth grade students.

“It is with great pleasure that I welcome Florida’s first lady to the City of Tarpon Springs,” Archie said. “As a remembrance of her visit, I am presenting Mrs. Scott with a key to the city. I am thrilled that First Lady Scott chose to tour Tarpon Springs Elementary School and read to six classes during her Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! tour. Governor and First Lady Scott have an open invitation to visit our great city any time.”

As part of her commitment to reading and literacy, Scott is currently traveling the state for Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida!. She is visiting eight elementary and middle schools, one high school and participating in an event at the Kennedy Space Center where she will present awards to the student winners of the Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! 2014 PSA contest.
