Morris is a longtime friend of school board president Perla Alarcon-Flory, who made this happen.

“I love to visit schools. That’s what made me say yes, so I could speak to the kids and whoever wanted to listen,” said Morris.

Morris and Alarcon-Flory read to the class.

The books are available in the school …
