CINCINNATI (March 2, 2016)
– Xavier Musketeers’ Head Basketball Coach Chris Mack was at Pleasant Hill Academy Tuesday morning to unveil Coach Mack’s Corner, a space for kids to learn and read. This reading space, the first major program of the Mack Family Foundation, features a Mack Family Foundation mural, bookshelves stocked with 600 age-appropriate books provided by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and furniture for the kids to sit down with their new favorite book.  

Upon arrival at the school, the Mack family was greeted to a chorus of cheers from students eager to greet the NCAA star. After the warm welcome, Mack was off to the school’s library to unveil his Corner and speak with students. Before the unveiling, the kids were treated to a Q+A between Mack and Xavier Hall of Famer, Joe Sunderman.  

“Education is the key that unlocks countless opportunities,” said Mack to the students.  

“If you can learn to love reading and learning, you will be successful. Every success story starts with a willingness to learn and challenge yourself. When you come here and pick out a book, I want you think about how you’re creating new opportunities for yourself; and I want you to have fun while you’re doing it.”  

After the Q+A, Chris and Christi Mack, Pleasant Hill Academy Principal Ms. Shauna McDowell, and Chris Hedrick of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt performed a ribbon-cutting ceremony, officially unveiling the first-ever Coach Mack’s Corner.  

Once the ribbon was cut, Chris and his wife, Christi, sat down to read a book to the kids. Naturally, they chose the basketball-themed, Curious George Joins the Team.
