Led by RIT, more than 400 student athletes and library staff from seven local colleges visited seven Rochester city elementary schools Nov. 5 to participate in the Giant Read. The event was funded by a grant RIT received from the John F. Wegman Fund through the Rochester Area Community Foundation. MCC, Nazareth, Roberts Wesleyan, St. John Fisher, SUNY Brockport and University of Rochester joined RIT for the event. The student athletes read to first graders and then joined in activities in the schools’ gymnasiums. Many of the colleges’ mascots joined in on the fun. Here, RIT student Jasmine Maisonet, a member of RIT's women's track and field team, reads to children from John Williams School No. 5.
