BOCA RATON, FL - The Florida Atlantic University volleyball team read to students at A.D. Henderson Elementary School as part of a literacy program.
Members of the FAU volleyball team, along with the coaching staff read a book to the students. That was followed by a discussion with each class stressing the importance of reading, academic achievement, making good decisions, staying off drugs and how to resist peer pressure. Each student received a free book at the end of the day to use for reading practice.
Books were donated the 2nd and 7 Foundation, an organization started by former Ohio State University football players Mike Vrabel, Luke Fickell and Ryan Miller. The purpose of the foundation is to promote literacy and provide positive role models to young children. FAU is one of six additional schools that have adopted the program nationwide.
