Sharing the story about Scar

Students, student-athletes, and coaches recently visited local elementary schools to read to students the children’s book, Scar, the Helpful Wolf, a story about Newberry College’s mascot, Scar. The book is authored by alumus Kevin Boozer (’10) and is illustrated in a way that is very easy for young children to understand.

Kim Hamilton, Principal of Boundary Street Elementary, said, “This gives our students an opportunity to learn about character education and Newberry College, through an engaging book that allows them to make real world connections.”

Not only do the elementary students benefit from this character-building experience, but the College undergraduates participating also gained a lot from this service-learning experience.

Students representing the Rotaracts Club, a College group version of the Rotary Club, donated $200 for the purchase of 15 textbooks for the library at Boundary Street Elementary. “Our students are happy to give back to the children in our community,” said Scott Joyner, Vice President for Institutional Advancement. The Office of Institutional Advancement gave a copy of the book to each school library during the elementary school visits. Newberry College students will continue to visit local elementary schools sharing the story of Scar, the Helpful Wolf.

Newberry College and children’s book author Kevin Boozer (2010 alumnus) collaborated to produce a children’s book featuring our mascot, Scar. With an emphasis on character education and leadership, Scar, The Helpful Wolf is a great choice for any age child and for anyone who has an affinity for Newberry College. The price of the book is $14.95.
