Students in the Athletes Helping Athletes leadership program from West Hempstead High School visited fifth graders at George Washington School to speak to them about sportsmanship on Feb. 7.

Designed to have its members act as role models, Athletes Helping Athletes is a part of the Student Athlete Leadership Team at West Hempstead High School. Members work together with college athletes at Molloy College to create and deliver motivational messages to younger students about drug and alcohol abuse prevention, sportsmanship and citizenship. Members of Athletes Helping Athletes are in grades 11 and 12 and were nominated by their coaches.
