author visitAuthor and JC alumnus Jody Lee Mott visited the elementary school on January 27 to attend the 3rd-grade assembly and present a special award to student Mahnoor Suhail.

In addition to being an author, Mott is also the host of “Dream Gardens,” a podcast that focuses on children’s books and interviews with authors. In October, he discussed the creation of a writing contest for students. Laurie Whitney’s 3rd-grade class entered the contest and Suhail was the lucky winner. As part of her award, her story was read on the podcast.
 
During Thursday’s assembly, Mott spoke to the students about the process of choosing the best story and presented an autographed copy of one of his one children’s books to Suhail. In addition, the elementary school received a copy of Mott’s book.
