We are thrilled to feature Bailey Urbach as our Student-Athlete of the Week! This is Bailey's second year of serving as a weekly volunteer with our central Ohio reading program. Bailey is an Ohio State University Rifle team member and serves as the secretary on the Ohio State Student Athlete Advisory Committee. She is also a member of the OSU Pen Pals elementary school pen pal program. Bailey is studying neuroscience and looks forward to attending medical school after graduation. Bailey shares, "Working with The 2nd &7 Foundation has shown me the power that we have as student athletes to be positive role models for kids. I love getting to meet a new group of kids every week and being able to share my love of reading with them."

Congratulations, Bailey!
