The Sheridan College Generals took place in the B.E.A.R. program on October 11th, 2012 at Sagebrush Elementary School in Sheridan, Wyoming. The B.E.A.R., Be Excited About Reading, is a national program that helps support children in their efforts to become better readers by building an exciting environment that entices them to read. A group of men’s & women’s basketball players from Sheridan College recently took place in one of the school wide “read-a-thons”. The read-a-thon students are rewarded for their efforts by given the opportunity to read with local high school and college students.
Assistant Coach Dan Magrino had this to say about the experience: “Anytime we can get out in the community and show our support for a great cause such as B.E.A.R. we are excited about the opportunity. Our guys are role models to the youth in the community, and emphasizing the importance of furthering your education is something that we pride ourselves in.”
The Generals will be in action next weekend October 19th & 20th at the Casper College Jamboree in Casper, Wyoming. The Generals open regular season play on November 2nd & 3rd in Gillette, Wyoming at the Gillette College Tournament.
