KEVYN ADAMS TO MENTOR LOCAL FIFTH GRADERS

Southwest Airlines, NHL and NHLPA Present “Score Your Own Goal”

RALEIGH, N.C. – Carolina Hurricanes center Kevyn Adams will take part in the “Score Your Own Goal” program on Thursday at Morrisville Elementary. Adams will team with Southwest Airlines pilot Josh Brehm to teach Jan Gould’s fifth graders that education and hard work are essential to their futures.

The “Score Your Own Goal” program is a joint effort between Southwest Airlines’ Adopt-a-Pilot program, the National Hockey League and the NHL Players’ Association. Adams and Hurricanes’ mascot Stormy will “face off” with students in educational activities and Brehm will reveal the science of flight with a Bernoulli’s Principle demonstration.

This joint Southwest Airlines/NHL/NHLPA visit will highlight the sixth anniversary of the Adopt-a-Pilot program, where pilots mentor more than 15,000 fifth-grade students across the country. Students follow their adopted pilot from the ground and the pilot corresponds regularly from the air, providing information incorporated into the class’ curriculum each day. This is the second year Southwest Airlines and the NHL/NHLPA have joined forces to promote education.

For more information regarding the “Score Your Own Goal” program, contact Emma Bennett at the Hurricanes (919.861.2300 x5105) or Steven Rubin at Southwest Airlines (919.465.3231). Morrisville Elementary is located at 1519 Morrisville Parkway in Morrisville.

The Hurricanes return to RBC Center on Wednesday, Feb. 19 (7 p.m., Fox Sports Net) following their game Tuesday at Toronto. Tickets for Wednesday’s game and all Hurricanes games are available via the team’s official website, CarolinaHurricanes.com, the Dodge Box Office at RBC Center or by calling 919-834-4000.
