Bluefield, WV- Coach Fong and the Bluefield State College Women's Basketball program has reached out to our local youth in the community to help develop each students reading ability. The goal of visiting and reading to the students of Bluefield Intermediate School is to develop a relationship with the community, especially at Bluefield Intermediate, by using the skill of reading to reach young people in Bluefield City.
The Women's Basketball Team also gets to spend time having lunch with the students to learn about their lives and get their prospective. This give the students of Bluefield Intermediate an opportunity to interact with the local basketball team and allow them to learn what it is like to play college sports. Coach Fong said regarding the Reading Day, "I am so glad our team was able to visit Bluefield Intermediate this season. It has been wonderful to see the players and young students interact with each other. I hope to continue this tradition of giving back to the community by helping teach young students to read."
