    The project is a collaboration between JWB, myON, ReadStrong Pinellas (R’Club Child Care), and Tampa Bay Rap Artist Corey Thornton, who uses catchy beats and memorable lyrics to inspire, motivate, and educate our next generation through music. Promoting summer learning/summer reading is one strategy of the Early Readers, Future Leaders: Pinellas Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, led by JWB and supported by dozens of Pinellas County partners.
