With the leadership skills identified in KSU 1101, and a childhood book selected for a literacy essay in English 1101, my fellow KSU student-athletes and I made a trip to Big Shanty Elementary School in Kennesaw, Georgia. Over the course of our visit, we read our favorite children's books to the students and spoke with them about the importance of literacy and leadership. Afterwards, we joined them for lunch in the cafeteria. Through a grant from the KSU Learning Communities Program, we were able to donate more than $350 worth of children’s books to the school, including the books we read to the children. Many thanks to Big Shanty Principal, Ms. Kelly Luscre, for allowing us to visit and read to her students!
This project won the Campus and Community Connections Award at the Fall 2017 Learning Communities Academic Extravaganza.
