Reggie Wayne makes a classroom call

Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne visited IPS School 14 Thursday and read to a kindergarten class with an E-reader as part of Verizon’s $46K for 46 Play” Super Bowl XLVI grant program.

Colts players are always interacting in the community, but Wayne is one of my favorite go-to guys and I thought it worth a mention that he helped celebrate a rewarding venture — The IPS Education Foundation received the single-largest grant of $20,000. The release (thank you, Kyle Niederpruem!) advised that half of that money will go to the foundation and the other half will be invested in E-readers for children at Washington Irving School 14.

Verizon also donated 571 NFL-Verizon knit caps for every child in school Thursday. Wayne put one on to show they were cool.

Teacher Janet Joern’s class enjoyed a bit of intimate time with Wayne as he read to them from an E-reader.

Now, if the Colts will just re-sign Wayne, who is about to become a free agent in the offseason, we all can appreciate his company more in the future.
