Women's Water Polo Participates In Read To Win
Stockton, Calif. - The Pacific women's water polo team John R. Williams Elementary School teamed up Thursday, Jan. 5, to support Read To Win, a children's literacy program for students at the school. By partnering with Pacific student-athletes, John R. Williams Elementary School hopes to add excitement to reading and help children develop a lasting love for literature.
"This is the fourth year of our Read To Win program," Associate Director of Athletics for Student Services and Compliance/Senior Woman Administrator Holly Trexler said. "Pacific Athletics is taking an active role in encouraging literacy in Stockton. Our student-athletes serve as role models and show how important reading is, and how fun reading can be."
Women's water polo student-athletes and staff visited John R. Williams Elementary Thursday to read to classes in an effort to discuss the benefits of reading and how books play a major role in life. Second- and third-grade students got a chance to hone their reading skills while spending time with Pacific women's water polo student-athletes.
"It was great to give back to the community," said senior Brittany Lloyd. "The kids were very excited and into it. It was a lot of fun."
By giving back to the community and taking an active role in supporting literacy, Pacific student-athletes have the chance to help society and serve as positive role models for children.
