Xavier University Musketeers’ Men’s Basketball Head Coach Chris Mack and his wife, Christi, launched their Foundation’s second “Coach Mack’s Corner” community outreach program at Rockdale Elementary Academy on Tuesday, August 29, 2017. The reading oasis at Rockdale Academy Elementary is the second unveiling by The Mack Family Foundation. The new bookshelves were stocked with 850 age-appropriate books provided by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and the foundation provided a Coach Mack themed space with comfortable, inviting setting to enjoy reading the books.

The entire Mack Family, Christi, his wife and daughters Lainee and Hailee all participated in the morning launch.  Upon their arrival, the students at Rockdale Academy Elementary greeted them with an enthusiastic high five line.  The ceremony was held in the newly decked out space and students participated in a Q&A with Coach Mack and his family.

“Education is the key to the future for these students.” Mack shared with students.

The importance of practicing has been a constant in my life and is a part of what I want to share with students.  We want to provide a space where students want to practice reading.”

Chris and Christi Mack and daughters Lainee and Hailey, Rockdale Elementary Principal Belinda Tubbs Wallace and students, as well as Chelsea Courtney of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt performed a ribbon-cutting ceremony, officially unveling Coach Mack's Corner at Rockdale Academy Elementary.
