Broncos and Books at Mason Elementary encourages reading

Lee’s Summit North High School football players recently visited with kindergarten students at Mason Elementary as part of the team’s Broncos and Books program. The football team initiated Broncos and Books three years ago to help establish relationships with elementary schools and future Broncos. Approximately 12 to 14 Bronco football players visit various elementary schools. Players read to the students and discuss the importance of reading. “It has been awesome for our players to understand the importance of being a role model to so many of these young kids,” said Ty Kohl, LSN head football coach.
