BAY COUNTY (WJRT) - (04/08/16) - One of the most famous college sports mascots stopped by a Mid-Michigan school Friday morning.
Michigan State's Sparty was at Auburn Elementary in Bay County to stress the importance of doing well in school.
The famed Spartan was a big hit with the students, who of course see the mascot on TV during football and basketball games.
Sports wasn't the topic of conversation, but writing and reading were on Sparty's mind.
Sparty visits a number of schools each year to get children fired up about learning.
