Cascagnette and McGonigle continue first week of RBC School Tour
Kitchener Rangers forward Jacob Cascagnette and goaltender Chris McGonigle visited King Edward Public School on Wednesday, September 28th and read to a group of students aged 6-10.
The visit reminded Jacob of what it was like when he was that age, and said that interacting with the students was his favourite part of the day.
“It’s always great being able to visit young students in our community and to share with them the importance of school,” said Jacob, who was born and raised in Kitchener.
“Even if you’re a great athlete, a talented artist, or maybe an awesome musician, school is important. It shapes you for the rest of your life.”
Chris, who was on his first RBC School Tour appearance since becoming a member of the Rangers, said the program is great for giving back to the community and putting smiles on many kid’s faces.
“We did our best to explain to the students that both friendship and teamwork are important, especially when it comes to school,” said Chris. “But the students taught us a lesson too – that being happy is one of the most important things you can do.”
