Nyack Basketball Teams Visit Upper Nyack Elementary School

Nyack College Men's and Women's basketball team members spent time at Upper Nyack Elementary School in Rockland County visiting with grades K-5 students, an annual tradition that provides an opportunity for our scholar-athletes to serve in the local community. Many of the children are quite familiar with the athletes who they also see at Nyack sports camps for boys and girls during the summer.

On the eve of what would have been Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 87th birthday, the Warriors read books about Dr. King to the children. They also read about friendship, kindness, forgiveness, and courage. The enthusiastic reception was evident in the message the children shared with the Warriors.
