Detroit Piston Reggie Jackson opens 8th literacy lounge in Detroit school

Reggie Jackson of the Detroit Pistons recently unveiled the Reggie Jackson's DETermined to Assist Foundation's newest literacy lounge at Gardner Elementary.

The lounge at Gardner is the 8th one the foundation has implemented, and two more are expected to be launched this year.

"Reading is of the upmost importance because if you can't read there's not much else that you're able to do," said Principal Shannon Cummings. "I think it's definitely going to make them want to read in part because it's brand new — it's a brand new space. And because they like the way the space looks and it's made for them."
