The Dungys visit Bellamy & Canella Schools


As Thanksgiving approaches, Lauren, Tony and two of their sons, Jason and Jalen were grateful to open their hearts and their books to two Tampa Elementary Schools. The eager to learn second graders, from Bellamy and Canella Schools, enthusiastically welcomed the Dungys for a reading of their book, Maria Finds Courage followed by a Q&A session.

What was uniquely impacting about this treasured school visit was the young Dungy sons took the lead, reading the book and answering the children’s questions. The teachers relished this unique approach, allowing their students the opportunity to relate to children of their age. Jason and Jalen emphasized the many facets of honorable sportsmanship while incorporating Christlike behavior.

The Dungy Family Foundation has been educating and interacting with school age children for seven years. Starting each September, the goal is to visit two schools a week as the calendar year permits. The audience of educators and students continue to provide positive feedback while allowing the Dungy Family Foundation to earnestly adhere to their mission of extending to community while offering a personal touch and encouragement.
