Nevada Wolf Shop presents University T-shirts to Clayton Middle School students


On Thursday, the University of Nevada, Reno student-owned store, the Nevada Wolf Shop, will give every student at Clayton Middle School a Nevada T-shirt. The presentation of more than 700 T-shirts coincides with Clayton’s weekly “College Day.”
“Clayton Middle School has come up with a fun way to encourage students to envision themselves attending college, and we are excited to support their ‘College Day’ spirit,” said Marcelo Vasquez, associate dean of students at the University. “The sixth-grade and middle-school years are the ideal time to reach out and help young scholars prepare themselves for higher education. We want these students to know their options include the ‘tier-one’ University right here in their hometown.”
The Nevada Wolf Shop, which is donating the shirts for the second year, is located in the Joe Crowley Student Union and is owned by the undergraduate students of the University, the Associated Students of the University of Nevada (ASUN).
College Day is usually every Friday at Clayton Middle School, which is when students where their team’s college shirt. Due to the Nevada Day holiday observed on Friday, the school is holding College Day this Thursday.
“Our counselors will be talking to our students during the week about the importance of preparing for college and the value of attending college,” Clayton Middle School Principal Bruce Meissner said. “We want our students to have fun and get excited about UNR.”
