My Favorite Books

HMS Students Gifted with Their Favorite Books

Over 100 people throughout our Dothan community have purchased books for HMS students.  The students listed their favorite book titles that they wanted to use as a starter for their own personal book collections.  Our  sponsors understand the value of literacy and the truth of the quote "Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader."  MANY THANKS to these sponsors for this generous and personalized way to invest in our students.
Click here to see the local television news story about these book donations.
