Averett Student-Athletes Read for Local Kids
DANVILLE, Va. — Several Averett University
student-athletes brought some children's books to life during a
reading for little kids at the Danville Public Library on Wednesday
morning. The "Wednesdays for Wees" event, sponsored by Smart
Beginnings, allowed local children to hear some of their favorite
stories read by Averett senior volleyball players Paige Aaron and
Hannah Wetherald, football senior Justin Gillespie and freshman
men's soccer player Brian Benitez.
The four Cougars read stories to the group of nearly 20 young children, then helped pass out snacks to the kids.
