Marcus paid a special visit to Baker Place Elementary, Grovetown Elementary, and North Harlem Elementary, this week where he spent time reading, speaking and visiting with students. He even participated in a small arts and crafts project with pre-k students. Marcus also gave the students advice on how to be a leader on and off the football field and the importance of getting good grades in school to be successful in life.
