A small school in Mecosta County is receiving a big donation.


On Monday, AT&T Michigan Pioneers along with State House Representative Jon Bumstead of Newaygo came to Big Jackson Public School in Paris to hand out backpacks filled with school supplies to its students.


Dr. Lori Tubbergen-Clark, Superintendent of Big Jackson School, is very appreciative being selected to receive the backpacks.


“Big Jackson is part of the Reading Now Network, so that’s exciting about the back packs is the students will be able to use them for take home books, so we can promote reading every single night in these children’s homes with new reading material.”  


In addition to Big Jackson, AT&T Pioneers plan to distribute more than 2,600 backpacks to students across Michigan this fall.
