RiverThing welcomes students at Southaven Intermediate

SOUTHAVEN, Miss - RiverKings Mascot, RiverThing, greeted students of Southaven Intermediate School as they arrived on Monday morning, part of the school's "Great Kindness Challenge."

"We’ve decided that if we are going to make a difference in our children, we must GO BIG OR GO HOME. We will have invited elected officials along with other community leaders to welcome students with handshakes, high fives, words of encouragement, etc. as they enter the school building to help promote the exciting atmosphere of our week’s kickoff." said SIS teacher, Beth Gardner.

RiverThing was on hand with high fives and a big thumbs up to students as they unloaded from school buses. He also took time to take pictures with students and help raise school spirit.

The RiverKings are back on Concorde Career College Ice on Tuesday morning for the second Belhaven University Face of Field Trip of the season as they face off against the Huntsville Havoc at 10:35 a.m. Season ticket holders can reserve their seats by calling 662-342-1755.
