Stars guards Deonte Burton and Stephaun Branch tipped off the All-Star Readers Program presented by Valley Fair Mall in February. The pair read I Am Rosa Parks to third and fourth grade classrooms at Quail Hollow Elementary School in celebration of Black History Month.
Each student received a Stars bookmark, provided by Valley Fair Mall, and the players dropped off Read posters featuring the team’s mascot, Buster.
In addition, Stars guard/forward Tre’Shaun Fletcher and center Isaac Haas spent time with students in the library at Jefferson Jr. High School. They spoke about life, basketball and the importance of their studies in their careers, telling the students about their path to the Utah Jazz organization and answering their questions.
The Stars will continue to spend time in local classrooms with All-Star Readers. For more information on the program, contact Matt de Nesnera at firstname.lastname@example.org.
