The Leo Club at Mountain View High School, sponsored by Sunnyvale Host, has been named a Global Literacy Champion for 2010 by the African Library Project. The award recognizes the Leo Club’s efforts in collecting, sorting, packing and shipping 1,800 books to the Emcozoni High School in Swaziland. The club also raised the $1,000 needed to pay the cost of shipping.
This is the third library the MVHS Leos have created in the region, with two others to their credit in Lesotho. The club plans to create at least one more library this school year.
