DURHAM, N.C. -- The first Read with the Blue Devil visit of the 2010-2011 school year was on Friday, September 18th.  The Read with the Blue Devils Program is in its 19th year and is still going strong.  Besides providing various reading level incentive prizes to Durham Elementary Schools, Duke student athletes visit each participating school at least once a semester to read books and interact with 3rd and 4th grade classrooms.  After reading stories and sharing the importance of literacy, student athletes engage in Q/A, which always leave the kids smiling! 

A special collaboration began this year between Duke Athletics and the Durham Sherriff's Office.  The Sherriff's Office is teaming up with Duke Athletics to spread the importance of reading, as well as talk about the importance of being drug-free and staying away from gangs.

The first visit of the year was to Holt Elementary School.  Student Athletes from women's soccer and men's and women's track and field attended this visit.
