Harlem Globetrotter Visits Elizabeth Lenz School

Posted: Updated:

A local elementary school got a visit from a member of a world famous basketball team on Friday!

Scooter Christensen of the Harlem Globetrotters spoke at Elizabeth Lenz Elementary School as part of the Globetrotters Action, Bravery, and Compassion or "ABC's of Bullying Prevention" program.

The goal is to help reduce bullying and violence among youth in schools and communities-- a problem that Christensen looks to educate kids on.

"We are just kinda teaching the do's and don't's. If you are getting bullied or see someone getting bullied what to do. And making the kids situation better on how to handle that."

Along with the talk, kids got to see some of Scooter's moves and tried to do some of their own!

If you want to see more of the Harlem Globetrotters -- you are in luck! They will play this Tuesday at 7 pm at the Reno Events Center. For more information or to buy tickets, click here.
