May 8, 2006

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - JU head men's basketball coach Cliff Warren and head women's basketball coach Jill Dunn will be speaking at Career Day at the Pine Estates Elementary School on Tuesday morning.

The Career Day, setup by the Otis Smith Foundation, has different professionals from all walks of life coming to speak to all of the children at the school for 20 minutes. Both coaches will talk to each grade, kindergarten through fifth.

"It is a great opportunity for us to get out in the community and give something back to these young children," said Warren. "These young people are looking for role models and hopefully we can show them how great our job is. I enjoyed the event last year and look forward to doing on annual basis."

It is the second straight year that the coaches have worked with Otis Smith Foundation with local children.

"This is a great program to get out in the community, work with children and give them some guidance," Dunn said. "Any chance that you get to help the youth of today is a great opportunity to have a positive effect on someone's life."
