As USC’s fine-feathered mascot, Cocky is devoted to making a difference in the Carolina community on and off the field. He and numerous student volunteers from USC have now taken to the South Carolina elementary classrooms to promote literacy. By doing so, Cocky is giving South Carolina elementary school children access to quality books through his literacy program, Cocky’s Reading Express. The collection of literacy materials has recently moved to the South Carolina Center for Children’s Books and Literacy after the recent milestone achievement of the program giving its 50,000th book! As part of the program, the USC Press intends to start publishing children’s literature for the first time in 2013.
Congratulations on a job well-done to Cocky and the volunteers of Cocky’s Reading Express!
