Pleasant Hill Academy’s library has a beautiful new reading corner thanks to Xavier University’s head men’s basketball coach, Chris Mack, and his Mack Family Foundation. Coach Mack and his wife, Christi, visited the school on February 28 to dedicate the new space.
Coach Mack’s Corner is a dedicated space where students and their families are encouraged to read, learn and explore together. Pleasant Hill Academy received this unique reading zone at no cost. The space came with books, new furnishings, bean bag chairs, a reading themed carpet, exciting wall graphics and more.
The Mack Family Foundation was established in 2016 to serve, inspire and help less fortunate children in the Tristate area. Chris and Christi Mack believe that early reading can predict how students will perform throughout the rest of their school careers. Their desire to make an impact led them to establish Coach Mack’s Corner.
