Each student in the school also received a book to take home from the Foundation. This corner is the fifth Coach Mack's Corner opened by the Foundation.
“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.”
This launch was made possible by the support of a grant from Speedway Children’s Charities Kentucky Chapter. Speedway Children’s Charities (SCC) is dedicated to helping children improve their quality of life, and through its various events and activities, the chapter strives to raise critical funds and provide grants to non-profit children’s organizations in Kentucky, Southwest Ohio and Southeast Indiana much like The Mack Family. This alignment in values resulted in the grant award that supported the launch of today’s corner.
This fifth corner in the Tri-State is all part of fulfilling The Mack Family Foundation’s promise to finish the work it started while Chris was the head coach of the Xavier Men’s Basketball Team. Cincinnati is home for Chris and his commitment to serving his hometown remains even in light of his move to Louisville, Kentucky.
