Over 2,000 elementary students came out and made some noise in the Schar Center at Elon University to support Elon Women's Basketball team. This special Education Day event allowed elementary students to watch a game, get an introduction to the University, and cheer loudly to win a pizza party. It was the first time that Elon has held an Education Day since Jan. 27, 2011.
Each class had a chance to “adopt” a player to cheer loudly for throughout the game. At half time, teachers played a fast-paced game of musical chairs.. with a twist! The final round involved dribbling a basketball and making a layup. Congratulations to Sr. Barragan from Elon Elementary on the win.
Superintendent Dr. Dain Butler was also in attendance to receive a signed basketball and take part in an interview around half-time.
All in all.. a great day! Thanks Elon University and the Elon Women's Basketball program for hosting this for our students.
