Local author Ty Allan Jackson has played an important role in Berkshire County and beyond. Between his work with "Read or Else", which sheds light on illiteracy in order to raise awareness and solve the problem, his public speaking engagements and more, Jackson has helped many children, both locally and nationally.

Seven years ago, Jackson released the book "Danny Dollar Millionaire Extraordinaire - The Lemonade Escapade". The book, which teaches financial literacy to children, has been featured on national television, on stations such as CNN and NBC.

It has been an amazing seven years for Jackson and Danny Dollar. Jackson discussed what this anniversary means to him, what 2018 is going to look like and much more in an exclusive interview with Live 95.9. Watch the video below:
