Student-athletes read to elementary students
The Herkimer College Athletic Department continued their year-round commitment to the community by reading to Herkimer elementary students recently. Several student-athletes and staff visited three separate classes from kindergarten to fifth grade to encourage students to read in the classroom and at home. Led by Principal Kathleen Carney and student-athletes Renee Hamilton (Herkimer), Emilie Coufal (North Syracuse) and Alexis Caughey (Cortland), more than 10 classes were read to.
