Students at Trinity Lutheran School, including Ainsley Kern, enjoy listening to Adams State College football player, Tommy Porter, defensive end, read to them during the fall 2008 semester. Throughout September and October, Adams State football players spent an hour a week at the school reading to groups of elementary children.

Ben Kern, assistant football coach and public relations coordinator, organized the reading sessions for the football program. "We believe the programs on campus at ASC should act as role models for children. What better way to be a positive role model than to enjoy reading together."
