Princeton Ice Hockey Alumni Giving Back: Hp4K Program Helping Youth

July 9, 2013

Princeton University men’s hockey alumnus Michael Sdao remembers receiving visits from local football players when he was in elementary school.

Over his past three years with the Tigers, the recently graduated defenseman spent time visiting elementary schools, encouraging children to read as a part of Stick to Reading.

"I remember looking up to them, so it’s cool being on the other side of it and seeing kids’ eyes open, just being excited about us being there and being excited to read," Sdao said.

Stick to Reading is part of Hockey Players for Kids (HP4K), a non-profit organization co-founded by former Princeton hockey player Dustin Sproat. His former Princeton teammate Ian McNally has worked with local schools and hockey programs to keep HP4K’s giving spirit in Princeton’s community.
