Student-Athletes read to Herkimer elementary students
HERKIMER, NY – Herkimer College and its athletic department continued their year-round commitment to the community by reading to Herkimer elementary students on Wednesday, March 12th.
A mix of student-athletes and staff went to three separate classes, from kindergarten to fifth grade, with the intention of teaching students the importance of reading in the classroom and at home.
Led by Principal Kathleen Carney and student-athletes Renee Hamilton (Herkimer, NY), Emilie Coufal (Syracuse, NY) and Alexis Caughey (Cortland, NY), Herkimer Elementary School allowed over 10 classes to be read too during the morning, having Herkimer College participants spend 20 minutes with each class.
