Women's Basketball Gives Back to the Community
CHICAGO -- In support of the DePaul Blue Demons Reading Club- “Read and Achieve”- three women’s basketball players, Felicia Chester, Deanna Ortiz and Anna Martin, accompanied Dave Corzine, Assistant to the Athletics Director for Community Outreach, to Glenn Westlake Middle School.
The group spoke to the entire school population (about 650 kids) about the importance of reading and staying in school. The players also spoke to the students about having a balance and being a scholar and an athlete. “It went really well…the girls were great and the students were receptive,” said Corzine.
