Students Hear the Importance of Education from Bengals Player
EAST PRICE HILL, Ohio (WKRC) -- Students on the west side learn an important lesson today, that learning is cool.
The Marvin Lewis Community Fund's "Learning is Cool" program traveled to Roberts Academy on Grand Avenue Tuesday. Bengals linebacker Vinny Rey joined Local 12's Bob Herzog and Jen Dalton.
Students heard about Rey's own experience in school and why he thinks it's important to get a good education.
He said, "I remember when I was in fourth grade I was asked to read out loud, I didn't know some of the words, I was nervous, it was embarrassing. But the more I read at home, the better I became and all of a sudden reading became my favorite subject."
Vincent also told students that their study skills will stay with them for life.
