    Football & Volleyball players visit Garden Hills Elementary School


    Student-athletes from football and volleyball visited Garden Hills Elementary School for their Student of the Month Lunch. Michael Hoomanawanui and Nicole Kump handed out medallions to the kids that were honored, took questions, and ate lunch with them as part of the Hometown Heroes program.

    Hometown Heroes is a community outreach program that provides our student-athletes with opportunities to interact with youth from Champaign County while spreading an anti-drug, anti-gang and pro-Illini message. This program enables our student-athletes to develop their speaking skills while impacting the lives of others as they serve as role models for the youth of our community.
