Generals Participate in B.E.A.R. Reading Program

The Sheridan College athletic department participated in the Sheridan Elementary School B.E.A.R. read-a-thon at Sagebrush Elementary School. The B.E.A.R. reading program entices young students to accumulate hours reading their favorite books in order to build the necessary habits to promote literacy amongst Wyoming students.  A select number of students were awarded with the ability to read alongside their favorite Sheridan College Generals during a morning session in October.

“Anytime we can give back to the community, and support a good cause we are excited to participate”, said General Sean McCarthy. “The importance of teaching young students the joy that they can achieve in reading will help them build necessary habits to have a good academic career.”

The Generals open their regular season next Friday, November 1st, against University of Great Falls at 7:00 PM.
