Photo Gallery 1: Rockies Visit SRES

On February 21, players and staff from the MLB Colorado Rockies visited with students at Salt River Elementary School during a “Character Counts” rally in the school’s courtyard. SRES has instilled the “six pillars of character” into its curriculum. The pillars are trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. The visitors from the Rockies organization were Dallas Davis, Rockies assistant director of community affairs, and players from the Rockies’ minor league affiliates: Jack Wynkoop, pitcher, Lancaster JetHawks; Peter Lambert, pitcher, Asheville Tourists; Brendan Rodgers, shortstop, Asheville Tourists; and Ben Bowden, pitcher, Asheville Tourists.
