The Junior Training Camp took place on Thursday, April 27

For New Orleans Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro there was no better way to celebrate Draft Day on Thursday than for him to visit Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary and to participate in a junior football training camp.

In partnership with the New Orleans Saints, Vaccaro hosted 100 students to take part in NFL Play 60 football activities and drills.

Rooted in the mission of providing economically-challenged students resources through the Kenny Vaccaro Foundation, Kenny spoke to students about the importance of education and school in addition to getting good grades to achieve academic excellence.

For Kenny, visiting Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary was an exciting opportunity to preview the work that his foundation will do in the New Orleans community in the coming year.

Through the Kenny Vaccaro Foundation, Kenny will be a voice of motivation, empowerment and encouragement to economically-challenged students in New Orleans.
