Galion footballers show the importance of literacy
GALION – The football players at Galion High School volunteered their time every Friday of the 2021 season to spend time reading to the youngest Tigers in primary and middle schools in Galion.
Players have read to elementary and middle school students for the past six years. While the entire football team participates in the program, only four to six players participate each week.
“It is important for players to come to the buildings to read and interact with young students to emphasize the importance of reading and studying,” said Galion head coach Matt Dick. “Younger students really admire high school football players and hopefully inspire them to be like them. “
The idea originally started with former Galleon superintendent Jim Grubbs, who challenged Coach Dick to put this program in place on his first day at the Galleon.
“I think the whole administrative team challenged the athletes and coaches, as well as the students who don’t participate in sports, to give more back to Galion,” said coach Dick. “Sixty hours of community service, which is a requirement for graduation, is easily achieved if students get involved in clubs, teams and groups at Galion High School. “
The overwhelming consensus is that students at Galion Primary and Galion Intermediate love that older students enter their buildings.
