Georgia Tech athletes read to Horizons Atlanta students

To celebrate National Summer Learning Day, a few Yellow Jackets took the time to read to local students from Georgia Tech’s Horizons Atlanta program on Thursday.

Among the participating athletes were Yellow Jackets and USA Basketball U19 Team guard Josh Okogie who read to rising first graders, basketball guard Tadric Jackson who read to rising second graders and football lineman KeShun Freeman who read to rising third graders. 

Horizons at Georgia Tech opened in 2013 and currently teaches over 100 rising first through ninth grade students from Drew Charter School and Centennial Academy.

Below are photos from Okogie, Jackson and Freeman’s visit to Horizons Atlanta on Thursday.
