Church offers book for every student

The two have done so every week for 12 years.

“It gives us more than it gives them,” said Sanborn who taught home economics and English at Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School for 35 years.

She’s enjoyed the results of her efforts as students become better and avid readers and has watched many succeed in life.

“The kids think we’ve read every book ever written!” said Sanborn.

The congregation memorialized Rena Huie, the former secretary of the elementary school from 1961-1971 with a piece of scripture printed on the back of each book.

When Huie passed away, her family requested that the church donate to local missions and this project was selected to receive funds donated in her memory.

Rena’s daughter-in-law, Linda Huie was on-hand to oversee the festivities and represent the family.
