Ivey reads “Lucy Meets A Logger” at Jackson Steele Elementary School

Every child was given a copy of Lucy Meets a Logger in their own Woods to Goods box.

Gov. Kay Ivey reading to students at Jackson Steele Elementary School in Hayneville.

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey on Monday was in Hayneville to read Lucy Meets A Logger to the first graders at Jackson Steele Elementary School in Hayneville. This is the first stop on the Alabama Forestry Association’s fall “Lucy Tour” in partnership with ForestryWorks.

Ivey was joined by Stephanie Fuller, the author of Lucy Meets A Logger and the Director of Promotions & Economic Development for the Forest Workforce Training Institute (ForestryWorks). Jeff Green, a forester for Resource Management Service, educated students on his job and the many career opportunities the forestry industry offers.

These forest industry leaders educated the first graders on daily used products that come from trees and the importance of the forestry industry to the people of Alabama.

Each first-grade class was given a “Woods to Goods” box donated by the Alabama Sustainable Forestry Initiative. These boxes contained a Lucy Meets A Logger book and many educational components for teachers to use to explain the significance of the forest industry.

Lucy Meets A Logger was written about Fuller’s childhood and growing up in a logging family. She wrote this book as an educational tool to take in to schools and encourage the forest products industry in a positive light for our future leaders and professionals.

All profits from Lucy Meets A Logger go to ForestryWorks in order to continue creating educational tools for the forest products industry.

As governor, Ivey has been a strong supporter of Alabama’s timber industry. More than two-thirds of the state is covered in forests providing the raw material for Alabama’s second-largest manufacturing industry. Forestry provides a $27.7 billion dollar total economic output to the state’s economy.
