LYNDONVILLE — The Northern Vermont University-Lyndon men’s basketball team spent several days of their January break spending time with students at four Northeast Kingdom schools. The Hornets visited Troy Elementary School on Jan. 9, Charleston Elementary School and Brighton Elementary School on Jan. 14 and Coventry Village School on Jan. 16
Team members visited classrooms at each of the schools and talked with students about the transition to college, moving away from home, financial aid, scholarships, the recruitment process and the importance of working hard in school so they are prepared for college. They also organized shooting competitions and games and interacted with the students during their lunch and recess. The students had the opportunity to ask the players questions about their majors, why they chose Lyndon, and how they developed their skills as basketball players.
