Gymnastics Participates in Sparky's Tour
Sept. 10, 2009
Head women's gymnastics coach John Spini and two of his gymnasts participated in Sparky's Tour. Sparky's Tour will continue to feature ASU coaches, administrators and student-athletes emphasizing the importance of education, and that everyone has the ability to be successful if they work hard, focus and follow the rules. Coaches and student-athletes have been through the same struggles that current students face. Utilizing speakers that students can relate to reinforces what teachers and administrators are helping their students to learn.
Junior Skye Gentile and freshman Nikki Johnson accompanied Spini, Sparky and two members of the Sun Devil Spirit squad to PT Coe Elementary, where they discussed the importance of doing well in school and asking teachers for help. The students clapped with delight and astonishment when watching the gymnastics video and cheered loud for Sparky throughout the day.
