In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday last week, schools across America celebrated reading, verbal & written expression, exploration of literature, and sharing knowledge by inviting guest readers from within their community into their classrooms. During Black and Gold Week, Columbus Crew SC Brand Ambassador Frankie Hejduk visited with students at Rose Hill Elementary, St. Matthew School and Horizon Science Academy to promote the importance of education and reading in celebration of Read Across America Week. Each classroom visit began with Frankie inviting students and staff to participate in chants in celebration of the March 2nd Home Opener. After reading various titles to each classroom, Frankie handed out Black and Gold swag, answered questions from the students and spent time posing for photos with the students and staff. This event is a part of Columbus Crew SC’s Give Forward initiative, presented by MAPFRE Insurance.
