Brown Celebrates 10th Anniversary with Fox Point School

(Oct. 26, 2000) -- The Brown University Athletic Department celebrated its 10th Anniversary of working with the Fox Point Elementary School, now the Vartan Gregorian School, at a special Kick-off ceremony in the school's auditorium.

The ceremony involved the entire school community - students, teachers, staff and parents - along with Brown athletes and coaches representing all 37 intercollegiate teams.

Brown and the Fox Point School have a unique relationship where Brown athletes regularly volunteer their time in the school's classrooms, reading and working with the elementary school children. Special contributions by the young students are recognized at Brown's All-Sports Banquet in May, where the top student in each class is presented with a special dictionary.
