Three O Heroes made some local kids’ days yesterday when they popped in on their lunch hour over at Prairie Mountain Elementary school. Heptathlete Melanie Vertrees and Lacrosse players Callie Wagner and Salliebeth Finnegan answered questions, joked around, and made paper airplanes with students from the school that had been selected as outstanding in the areas of attendance and behavior.

“The enthusiasm these students showed for the Ducks reminded us of the importance of getting out in the community and acting as positive role models” said Callie Wagner, who in other news was recently elected as a co-director of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), the group that serves as the voice of the student-athletes on campus and within the athletic department administration.

We hope the kids from Prairie Mountain enjoyed lunchtime yesterday as much as we did, check back soon for more O Heroes updates!
