 Read more
Adams Elementary students had a Valentines Day treat as local sports legends Trevor Hoffman and Bill Walton read the Dr. Seuss classic Green Eggs and Ham and other tales to students.

Part of the Rolling Readers Program's special Feb. 14 "Share Your Love of Reading" program, Hoffman and Walton were able to read their favorite books to the students.

"Our Adams Tigers were thrilled to have Trevor and Bill here," said Principal Derek Murchison. "They're always happy to welcome community members to read, but to have these sports stars really made this a special day."

The Rolling Readers program brings community members to schools to read to the kids. A San Diego organization, founded in 1991, is now nationwide. For more information, visit the group's website.
