Auburn, Ala. -
The Auburn Gymnastics' team heads to Cary Woods Elementary tomorrow to participate in the school's Video Game and Cyber Safety Night, an event to educate students and parents on smart Internet use.
The Tigers will be participating in games and speaking to Cary Woods students about the importance of Internet safety, while the students' parents are educated on the dangers of the Internet.
"This is a unique community service that will be an awesome experience for the ladies," said Auburn head coach Jeff Thompson. "The Internet has become a great resource for promoting education in public schools, but it also comes with many dangers that our gymnasts will be able to teach the children about."
The Tigers' visit to Cary Woods is just one of many community projects the team has been involved in this fall. Auburn has also participated in Family Fun Night at the Auburn Early Education Center and volunteered at Auburn Gymnastics Academy's Kick-off Classic.
"Putting the team in a position to promote education and its benefits to the youth in our community is one of our top priorities," Thompson said.
