Part of someone’s story
Posted on December 8, 2016
Excitement filled the air of the second-grade classroom on Monday. The young students, sporting blue and gold, anxiously awaited the arrival of their read-aloud guests. Read-aloud is always a fun activity, but you could sense this session was extra special. At the scheduled time, four smiling young men strode through the decorated classroom doorway. They were here! WVU football players quickly settled in to read to the attentive students. Afterward, the players answered questions, signing autographs as they visited with the children.
Through the simple act of reading a book, these Mountaineers became part of each student’s story. Will these second-graders one day recount the tale of “that day the Mountaineers came for read-aloud” to their own children? Will the players’ investment of time be the catalyst for a student to serve others down the road?
By God’s design, our stories intertwine. A teacher presents a lesson that sparks a career. A coach encourages a child to strive for more, instilling a work ethic. A chapel service leaves a student with a greater understanding of their faith. Whether their part of a student’s story is a sentence or a chapter, we’re thankful for the teachers, coaches, and volunteers who invest in our school community.
