Native Noxubee County Author Speaks To Starkville Children

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI)- An award-winning motivational speaker and best-selling author read to children in Starkville today.

Robert Little is a Noxubee County native and travels all over the country delivering speeches to children and educators.

He read some of his books to children at Emerson Family School. It’s part of the ” Reading to Succeed” event.

Little says he enjoys creating a positive impact on the lives of children, and it’s especially rewarding doing it where he grew up.

“My roots are here and I think it’s important that we not forget where we have come from. In fact, any time there is an opportunity to come to my community to visit schools, to do programs for students, professional development, parent presentations, I’m here in a heartbeat because this is where I’m from and I certainly have an interest in the schools doing well and the community doing well,” said Little.

Little also spoke to children and parents and Henderson Ward Stewart and Armstrong Middle School.
