D7 Student Scores Big Win to Clemson Carolina Game

D7 Student Scores Big Win to Clemson Carolina Game
You’ve heard the expression - reading will take you places. Well, 10 year-old Ty’Kerian Walker was banking on that happening when she entered a SC Department of Education competition called Read Your Way to the Big Game. In a surprise assembly at Pine Street School today, it was announced Ty’Kerian is the grand prizewinner of 4 tickets to the Clemson vs. Carolina game. To be eligible for the contest, students in kindergarten through eighth grade are required to read six books. As one of the two state winners, selected from more than 50,000 entrants, Ty’Kerian will be treated to sideline passes before the game and pictures with the mascots from Clemson and Carolina. As part of the big reveal the Clemson Tiger joined in the fun at Pine Street, as students and staff celebrated Ty’kerian’s win and wagered their bets on the victor of this weekend’s infamous college rivalry.
