AUBURN-Five members of the Auburn men's golf team and assistant coach Ryan Cabbage as well as 10 Auburn University Cheerleaders served as guest readers during Auburn Early Education Center's annual "Read Across America Day" Friday.
Rosson Anderson, Jamie Bowen, Steven Groover, Jay Moseley and Keith White selected books that had special meaning to them prior to each reading to a separate class of kindergarten children. Alabama Education Association's (AEA) 2008 Read Across Alabama campaign featured Auburn University's Aubie and University of Alabama's Big Al on their posters to promote reading in every Alabama elementary school classroom.
The golfers and cheerleaders passed out Auburn Pride sportsmanship bracelets to each class after they read to encourage good sportsmanship and to introduce the children to Auburn's Sportsmanship Initiative.
