Former NFL Player Visits Rosenwald

Former NFL Player Visits Rosenwald

The students in Ms. Ingrid Nelson’s first-grade class had a special guest for Wednesday’s read aloud and reader’s workshop portions of their ARC reading lesson.  Matthew Dorsett read stories to the students as they listened attentively. Prior to his visit, students who displayed positive behavior had their names entered into a drawing to have the opportunity to read to Mr. Dorsett.  Five lucky students were chosen.  Three additional names were pulled to receive autographed backpacks.

Dorsett is a native of New Orleans, LA and graduate of Southern University.  He played with the Super Bowl winning Green Bay Packers, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the San Francisco 49ers.  He is now the State President of the National Football League Players’ Association.
