"Megan said, "I had a great time visiting the school. I think it is a great program and  I loved how the school used NASCAR racing to promote reading. I was honored that they asked me to be part of it. The kids were so excited with regards to my career and really loved being able to see the race car. I encouraged the kids to make good grades and be involved at school. I told them to pursue their dreams and doing good in school can help them achieve their goals."
Megan said, "This was an awesome experience for my dad and I. I've always been a huge Cincinnati Reds fan and it was great to attend the game much less, get the opportunity to be on the field. Being able to interact with the players and officials and participating in the game's activities was truly an honor. My family and I had a blast and I would like to thank the Cincinnati Reds and Zach Bonkowski for allowing me to be part of it and the players and officials for being so nice and interested in my career. It's something I will always remember."
