Saint Paul’s Athletic Department
Creates Community Outreach Initiative
Lawrenceville, VA: October 22, 2008- Saint
Paul’s College Athletic Department has created a community outreach
initiative that infuses the athlete’s professionalism with civic
According to the
Athletic Director Leroy Bacote, the goal of the initiative is to take the
athlete’s leadership, strong work ethic, sportsmanship and healthy habits to
inspire youth to reach for their dreams. "We have some great athletes
enrolled in our program and they can contribute significantly to motivating
the youth in our community to excel," remarks Mr. Bacote.
The first activity involved student
athletes, Crystal Rood and Antony Wynn of the Saint Paul’s College
Basketball teams, who volunteered to read thematic books during Fire
Prevention week for Story Time at the Brunswick County Library. Rood, a
sophomore from Woodbridge, VA, plays guard for the women’s basketball team
and Wynn, a senior from Richmond, VA, plays forward for the men’s basketball
team. Additional student athletes have volunteered to read at Story Time
next month on November 13 and on November 20.
Children’s and Youth Services Coordinator,
Jessie Gordon, developed Story Time as an outreach service available to
daycare centers, Head Start classes and schools to get children more
involved in the Brunswick Library. In the many instances, children who
participate in story time will come back to the library to check out the
book read earlier that day.
Other community outreach activities planned by Saint
Paul’s Athletic Department are the purchase and distribution of books to
youngsters, free tickets to basketball games, and the adoption of classrooms
for the holiday seasons.
