Thunder, cheer team visit Palomino Intermediate students
GCU News Bureau
Sixth-graders in teacher Anne Piano’s class at Palomino Intermediate School were treated to fist bumps, break-dance moves and other fun moments with Thunder and members of the Lopes cheer squad early Thursday as part of the school’s Advancement Via Individual Determination program.
Each university, college and community college in Arizona, in addition to universities from Duke to Oregon, has some presence at the school to expose students to higher education possibilities. GCU’s K12 Pathways Executive Director Leigh Critchley helped organize the event with Piano and Principal Jenny Robles. We’ve got photos of Thunder with the kids.
