POCATELLO – The Idaho State University basketball team will be at Gate City Elementary Wednesday.

Gate City Elementary is hosting a diversity and exclusivity assembly 9 a.m. and the ISU basketball team will be there to help the school promote the cultural diversity within the community.

The players will share stories from their childhood, talking about what makes each one of them different. They will also talk about discrimination some of them have faced throughout their lives and how they overcame it.

“We are hoping to bring awareness of the diversity of our culture and our community and hope to utilize this assembly to instill good values, educate and teach understanding to our children,” STAR coach at Gate City Elementary Whitney Curzon said.

Curzon said she works with the school’s principal and counselor to help resolve conflict and correct social behavior through education and support.
