Oak Grove Elementary gets rewarded

HERNANDO, Miss. – Students at Oak Grove Elementary School received a big surprise as RiverKings players Reid Campbell and Dan Delisle stopped by in conjunction with the RiverKings Readers program presented by Belhaven University on March 18.

Oak Grove Elementary school students read 297,000 minutes in the month of January to pace the program.

"Having the RiverKings players come to Oak Grove to recognize the great work our kids are doing and interact with them was fabulous," said Oak Grove Elementary School Librarian Ashley Hawkins. “The students loved it and were thrilled to each receive a free ticket to next weeks game. We are very proud of the students and grateful the RiverKings see value in reading.”

The RiverKings are back for the final weekend of the regular season March 27-28 against the Peoria Rivermen. Saturday, March 28 is Fan Appreciation Night, presented by Belhaven University. The first 3,000 fans in attendance will receive a free RiverKings rally towel courtesy of Super Drugs Pharmacy and Superior Health & Wellness.
