The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) of DeSoto County sponsored a TitleWish campaign to purchase books for Walls Elementary School and Horn Lake Elementary School libraries. 100 percent of monies raised were donated to each school. According to the council, "the NPHC supports academic success and literacy of children within DeSoto County; access to books and library programs gives student achievement a boost."
Walls librarian, Kimberley Trillett, said that her school was gifted a total of $2,332.00 for books. The funds purchased student recommended titles, including The Sugar Plum Ballerinas series by Whoopi Goldberg and the Princess series by Christina Soontovnvat.
