Several student-athletes and members of the UW band participated recently in Reading Night With the Badgers at St. Lukes School in Plain, Wis. Joining the band were women's basketball players Jamie Russell and Anya Covington, Lauren Gunderson of women's soccer and Megan Beers from the women's track team.
Band members and student-athletes were sent to different classrooms throughout the school to read a portion of a book to each group of students. The students rotated from classroom to classroom while hearing portions of different books.
After reading the excerpts, the students were given time to ask the student-athletes and band members questions about reading, staying in school, being in college, etc.
The event concluded by meeting in the gym, where there was a book fair and students could get autographs and pictures. The UW Band playing Varsity ended the festivities with the playing of "Varsity".
