Alexander Central’s CARE Squad reaches out to elementary students

ACHS Senior Isaac Chapman, who was recently voted to the Shrine Bowl, reads with elementary school students at Stony Point Elementary School on Friday morning, November 1.

Cougar Athletes visit Schools each week as part of reading program

By D.N. PENNELL, Jr.

     Each week, ACHS Football Coach Butch Carter takes his PE and Weight Training Classes to visit local elementary schools to read with students as part of the CARE Squad. CARE stands for Cougar Athletes for Reading Excellence. According to Coach Carter, his players and student-athletes enjoy the program just as much as the little guys they help with reading.

The program continues throughout the year at Alexander County’s Elementary Schools.

    This makes my heart smile! So proud of Issac! I remember when he was born and what a blessing he has always been to me. Thankful that ACHS has a coach that participates in this reading program!
