Student Athletes Host Giant Read

Student Athletes Host Giant Read

For the third year in a row, St. John Fisher College student-athletes hosted the Giant Read, traveling to General Elwell S. Otis School No. 30 to read The Lion and the Little Red Bird by Elisa Kleven.

The annual event is part of the READ: Hope in Action Program that is designed to promote literacy in Rochester city schools.  The program was started in 2007 at the Rochester Institute of Technology by Chandra McKenzie, RIT's Assistant Provost of Academic Affairs, and Lou Spiotti, Director of Athletics and Recreation.

The trip was organized by Fisher's Student Athlete Advisory Committee.  In addition to reading the book, the Cardinals helped the children complete a reflection activity, discussed life as a student-athlete, and answered the first graders’ questions.
