Tri-City Fever football player Bradley Njoku poses for a selfie Thursday with Stevens Middle School students during their lunch break.
A group of about 10 players and team owner Teri Carr helped the Pasco school celebrate winning the Attendance Matters contest, held March 5 at the Toyota Center in Kennewick.
Attendance Matters is a United Way campaign to improve higher school attendance rates.
Fifteen middle schools within seven school districts in Benton and Franklin counties were eligible to win.
Never miss a local story.
The program is sponsored by the United Way of Benton & Franklin Counties.
