SOUTH SIOUX CITY, NE (KTIV) -

A special visitor stopped by Cardinal Elementary in South Sioux City, Nebraska on Thursday.

Nebraska's First Lady, Sally Ganem, was greeted outside the school by several students holding flags.

She then spoke to the kids about finding out what they love and then pursuing their dreams.

Ganem, a former elementary principal and teacher, also reminded students about the importance of reading.

"Modeling the reading is so important and really a lot of it comes from home and just pushing that it's important to read or seeing models read, even as families read papers or their favorite magazines or directions on how to put a toy together," Sally Ganem, the First Lady of Nebraska said.

Ganem donated books to the Cardinal Elementary Library and read the book "C is for Cornhusker" to a group of students.
