Metro Councilwoman Vivian Wilhoite and Nashville Sounds Mascot "Ozzie" were recently spotted at Lakeview and Una elementary schools.
They were there to read to students and to emphasize the importance of reading.
"I was amazed (at) the joy and happiness it brought to the students' faces," said Mindy Schwartz, who helps Wilhoite with her blog, www.vivian-29.blogspot.com, and was there for the occasion.
"The Sounds offer a great opportunity to go to the schools to read to the students, and it seems most people are not aware of this program," she said. "This experience captured me to the point that I will be going to volunteer … to take part in … programs for these children."
