Woodward Elementary students had a special visitor Sept. 10.

Atlanta Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon stopped by the school to speak with fifth graders about leadership and the importance of giving back to the community. Weatherspoon’s SPOONful of Hope Foundation partnered with Georgia United Credit Union and Star94 Radio for a school supply drive and his visit to Woodward was in follow-up to the school supply donation made to the school in August.

Weatherspoon said it’s important for children to learn about those matters at an early age.

“The youth are our future and I feel like if we start when they’re young it will have a better effect on the outcome [of their lives],” he said. “I love children, being around them and having a good time, seeing them smile and just speaking positive to them.”
