GREEN BAY – Students at Green Bay’s Nicolet Elementary School received some special guests Monday.
Members of the WWE made a stop at the school to read to children.
More than 100 students and faculty were on hand for the event.
The event was sponsored by the We Give Books campaign.
Those involved in the project say they want to have a positive influence on children and reading.
“We obviously try to give back to the community as much as we can. We feel they may listen to us a little more than their teachers that they see every day. So we are here today to show them just how fun reading can be,” said Sheamus, WWE superstar.
Each student was given a book to take home.
The We Give Books organization hosts events such as this around the country to promote literacy.
