2nd and 7 program

In December 2019, River High School partnered up with River and Powhatan Elementary Schools with the 2nd & 7 Foundation. This foundation’s mission is to promote reading and literacy by providing free books and positive role models to young kids, while simultaneously encouraging student-athletes to pay it forward. 

River High School student-athletes started going River and Powhatan Elementaries in December 2019 to read a book to second-grade students. After the student has read the book, the second graders each receive their own book to start building their own library at home. The program wraps up this month.

We are proud of our student-athletes for participating in this program and for being great leaders to our younger students!
