EMU football players read to Adams Elementary School students.

The athletes visited the school as part of a joint effort between EMU and the 2nd & Seven Foundation to promote literacy among young children.

EMU Assistant Athletic Director for Academics Erin Burdis says the kids get a lot out of these visits, and learn about the importance of reading and being a good citizen.
