Athletes as Readers and Leaders involves actual student athletes rather than professional stars to bring the important message of literacy, wellness, and physical fitness to our younger students. It fosters a love of learning and emphasizes scholarship and leadership. More importantly, the program provides realistic role models and goals to elementary students. It goes beyond most literacy and wellness programs by creating positive relationships through close interaction between high school athletes and elementary students.
If you would like to have some of our athletes join your school/classroom for Athletes as Readers and Leaders, please contact Head Coach Brendan Riley, email@example.com. or Erin Neal Parkside High School Librarian firstname.lastname@example.org
