On Friday, March 24, 2017, Millington Elementary School’s fifth graders were delighted to receive a visit from NFL tight end Alan Cross.
Cross, a product of Millington, spent his time speaking to the students about the importance of studying and putting forth your best effort. Cross shared his educational story discussing his time at Millington Middle, Millington Central High School, and The University of Memphis graduating with a degree in chemistry. The Tampa Bay Buccaneer also discussed the value of teamwork and problem solving. Cross told the students that he is living his dream, and with a solid education, hard work, and persistence, they can also fulfill their dreams. Cross’s motivational talk inspired the students as they prepare for state assessments in April. The fifth grade students and teachers appreciated Alan Cross for taking time out of his schedule before returning to Tampa Bay’s training camp and wish him the best in his endeavors.
