Video: Davis, Miller send message to students during standardized testing

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

This week, students throughout Kentucky are taking standardized tests as a part of the Commonwealth Accountability Testing System. In support of the young test-takers during the week, men's basketball stars Anthony Davis and Darius Miller filmed a series of three short video messages with words of encouragement.

Davis and Miller emphasize the importance of tests while encouraging students to do the best they can by focusing, getting a good night's sleep and eating a healthy breakfast. It's a familiar message for anyone who has taken part in CATS testing before, but coming from a pair of NBA-bound national champions, it's sure to be heard loud and clear.

You can watch the video below or download the video file. Here is what Davis and Miller had to say to Kentucky students:

I think it is good showing that even student athletes take academics seriously and can encourage their fellow students to do the same.

I have tried to download the file to show at our school next week, but the download link above leads to a login box. Is there a direct way to get the video?

Thank you SO much Anthony and Darrius. All year I have been telling my students that we are going to "Claw our way to the top"just like the UK Wildcats!!! My room is done in a UK theme so all year we have referenced you guys for inspiration. This vidoe has brought me to tears to see that you all would take the time to make students feel special and give them the inspiration that they need to be successful. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Awesome young men i wish them the best
