STOCKTON, Calif. - Men's basketball junior forward, Miles Reynolds, spent part of his Thursday afternoon inside the Tully C. Knoles library reading one of his favorite childhood books to the 25 gathered 2nd through 4th graders, as a special invited guest of Lincoln Unified's Summer at the Library program.
Lincoln Unified created this Thursday afternoon reading program as a motivational tool to keep young students interested in working on their reading skills during the summer. Miles very proudly read one of his elementary school favorites, Clifford's Sports Day, to the children that had gathered to be entertained on this relaxing July afternoon. Accompanying Mr. Reynolds in the festivities was Splash, the Stockton Ports enthusiastic mascot, who helped Miles sell the importance of extra reading. "My love of reading began with my parents introducing me to great friends like Clifford," recalled Miles. "I couldn't wait to see what the big Red dog was going to do next!"
