What: Houston Center for Literacy annual Mayor’s Literacy Leadership Breakfast
Where: River Oaks Country Club
PC Moment: Reveille came early for more than 350 proponents of literacy who, over bacon and eggs, raised $150,000 for the center’s adult literacy programming. Mayor Sylvester Turner rallied the troops with his call for improving the city’s embarrassingly low rate of adult literacy. One in every five adult Houstonians is functionally illiterate.
The program was led by emcee Khambrel Marshall with honoree Carlos Correa in absentia. (The star shortstop had a game in Minnesota the night before. No red-eye early morning for this Astros star.) Houston Children’s Charity CEO Laura Ward accepted on his behalf.
