University of New Mexico’s athletic department is partnering with Save The Children Action Network for “Readers Make Leaders” starting Tuesday and continuing on Tuesdays through June. The campaign is set to feature Lobo student-athletes taking part in virtual story time events for children in the community.
The first event, set for 3-4 p.m. on Tuesday will feature at least two Lobo student-athletes including softball’s Andrea Howard and football’s Bryson Carroll. The student-athletes will read to children in the community during the one-hour session as an opportunity for adults and children to participate in fun and engaging activities — all from their homes.
Parents in the community can sign up via the Save the Children Action Network website: SavetheChildActionNetwork.org/read-nm.
Books featured in the online “Readers Make Leaders” events will be targeted toward infants and toddlers (ages 0-4) as well as young children (5-8).
Each week through June, different Lobo student-athletes and coaches will take part in the event. Each event is 3-4 p.m. on Tuesdays.
