Kings player gives CST pep talk to Mark Hopkins students

e-Connections Post Mark Hopkins

Students in Mark Hopkins Elementary School’s after-school MASTERS (Making After School Time Enriching, Rewarding and Successful) program were visited last week by Jason “JT” Thompson of the Sacramento Kings, who encouraged the kids to do their best on state standardized testing.

Thompson also signed autographs and played a little one-on-one basketball with the students. Former Sacramento Monarchs coach Monique Ambers (“Coach Mo”) also dropped by the school to inspire students.

The students were excited and enjoyed their surprise visitors.

MASTERS is a partnership with the Center for Fathers and Families.
