Hokie football players and coaches to read to elementary schools across the Commonwealth
The Notebook
In an effort to promote reading in Virginia, members of the Virginia Tech football program will be crossing the Commonwealth the Friday, Oct. 10, to read to elementary school students. The Hokies have a bye week before taking on Boston College on Oct. 18.

As part of Herma’s Readers, head coach Frank Beamer will join other players and coaches in reading to the youth of Virginia. Herma’s Readers is a non-profit organization named for Beamer’s late mother, created to promote literacy across the state in grades K-12.
