Coach Stokelin began by this initiative by gaining approval from the principal of Plank Road North Elementary School. The principal and his secretary coordinated the entire schedule for the event. This took place on a superintendent’s day when high school students were off, while elementary students still had school.
In preparation for the event, Coach reached out to a local Webster author who had written a book about her son’s basketball journey, where he overcame adversity and continued to persevere despite not making the 5th-grade basketball team.
Coach Stokelin purchased 10 books from her and brought them to Plank North. He and his team then read these books to students ranging from 2nd grade to 5th grade. Ultimately, the books were left in the school’s library for the students to enjoy.
