Chris and Christi Mack Return to Five Cincinnati-Area Schools as Part of ‘Coach Mack’s Corner’ Restock Initiative

CINCINNATI (MAY 11th, 2019) – University of Louisville head basketball coach Chris Mack and wife Christi returned to Cincinnati on Friday, May 10th as part of a Mack Family Foundation outreach initiative that oversaw a restock all five of his Coach Mack’s Corners. The restock tour saw the Macks spend their morning and early afternoon at the five Tri State-based elementary schools that received their foundation’s signature reading rooms in 2017 and 2018.
 
In addition to donating another 150 books to each Corner, the Macks also stressed the importance of literacy in achieving long-term education goals. The book donation comes just in time for the students’ summer break, allowing them to practice their reading over the summer months.

The program began at Pleasant Hill Academy in North College Hill. From there, the Macks visited North College Hill Elementary, Rockdale Academy Elementary, and Ethel M. Taylor Elementary, before rounding out the day at Mary A. Goetz Elementary in Ludlow, KY.

Coach Mack’s Corners are state-of-the-art reading oases installed within Title I schools in traditionally inner-city communities. These Corners display exciting sports-themed wall graphics, feature beanbag chairs and other comfortable seating and house several hundred age-appropriate books. Thanks to Friday’s restock, each of these Corners now offer students more than 750 brand-new books. These books appeal to all ages, interests, and reading capabilities.
