The School Volunteer Association of Bridgeport, Inc. will be celebrating its 50th anniversary with a special breakfast event on May 17, from 7:45-9 a.m., at the Bridgeport Holiday Inn. The featured speaker will be Malcolm Mitchell, a wide receiver for the 2017 Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots.
Mitchell is a recent graduate of the University of Georgia, where he realized that his athletic skills did not match his academic abilities. Determined to improve his academics, he became an avid reader and lover of books. This led to his writing a children’s book and the creation of his own nonprofit organization, Read With Malcolm, which promotes the benefits of reading and book ownership.
