D1 Students Receive Free Books From Clemson University's Tigers Read! Initiative

Last Friday, a group of D1 students traveled to Clemson University's indoor practice facility to join Kathleen Swinney, representatives from Clemson's College of Education and Scholastic,The Clemson Tiger, Clifford the Big Red Dog, #13 Hunter Renfro, #40 Hall Morton, and #42 Christian Wilkins for a celebration of the Tigers Read! initiative.

Every child received a bag full of books, read with players, and talked about why reading was important. Students were able to get pictures with the players and even throw the football around with them!

The initiative is sponsored by Dabo Swinney's All In Team Foundation and has delivered customized Scholastic book packs to nearly 1,200 students across South Carolina that help prevent the decline in reading skills many students experience during summer months.
