Drinkwater students, UMaine athletes collect books for Ghana
The fifth graders at Drinkwater Elementary teamed up with former University of Maine football player Roosevelt Boone of www.strongmind-strongbodyinc.org to collect books for students in Ghana.
Boone shared his experiences volunteering at a school in Ghana. He was accompanied by two current UMaine football players who helped him collect the seven boxes of books.
The Drinkwater students had an opportunity to learn about the education system in Ghana, as well as college life at UMaine, and the demands and challenges of balancing academics with a varsity sport schedule.
