ASU Track & Field's McDaniel, Phillip Participate in Sparky's Tour
Oct. 1, 2009
TEMPE - Two members of the Arizona State University track and field program were on hand at Heard Elementary School in Phoenix on Friday (September 25) to be a part of Sparky’s Tour. Kenny McDaniel, women’s sprints/hurdles/relays coach, and Joel Phillip, a 2008 Olympian for Grenada, joined Sparky and the spirit squad to discuss the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and tending to their educations.
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.
