Georgetown, Ky.– Kentucky State University Track and Field teamed up with the KSU Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Alpha Phi Alpha, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Zeta Phi Beta and Scott County High School Cheerleaders for a day of service at two Scott County schools.
The Track and Field Thorobreds started off the morning at Lemons Mill Elementary School with the Scott County Cheerleaders during each grade levels enrichment times. Leadership and Teamwork were the themes discussed by the student athletes.
Scott County presented their video from UCA Nationals where they received fourth in the Nation, and the KSU athletes talked about their experiences at the SIAC and National Championships. After each discussion, the students had the opportunity to participate in a fun-filled obstacle course.
“It was a good experience to have such a positive influence on all of those younger kids,” said junior Aymir Taylor. ” I learned a lot from by just watching them play and have fun, and I could tell they grasped everything we were saying and doing. I know they enjoyed us as much as we enjoyed them.”
Later, in the afternoon, KSU Greeks and team up with the track and field squad to participate in in Scott County Middle School’s Cards Pep Rally. The Thorobreds talked about their academic, athletic, and Greek life participation at KSU.
