First Lady Visits Port St. Joe Elementary

Posted: Updated:

Some of Port St. Joe's best and brightest had the opportunity to sit down with a very special visitor Wednesday, but it's a little early for Santa.

Ann Scott is touring schools all over the state of Florida. On this day a group of students were treated to a story time session with Florida's First Lady.

Faculty and staff highly anticipated the visit after Mrs. Scott's aid called the school to ask for a visit to the state's first capitol.

"I was shocked and amazed and thrilled that she would pick Port St. Joe Elementary school to visit," said Principle Sue Gannon.  

Scott read two books to students who carefully followed along and learning some very important lessons.

"People like her are just like the rest of us," said Gannon. "You know just a normal human being; a grandmother, a mother to others, and that she enjoys being around children."

And what would the day have been without a book about the holidays.

"The kids were great, they certainly were lively and entertaining," said Gannon. "They were not shy at all, they interacted with her very well, they asked a lot of questions -- sometimes off track--  but that's okay they are kids.

"She seemed to enjoy them very much."

Monday the First Lady will continue her Florida tour to Tyndall Elementary School in Bay County.
