Professional Soccer Player Andrew Wheeler-Omiunu Visits Elk Grove Charter School

Elk Grove, CA – April 29, 2021 – Elk Grove Charter School students got full off of wisdom at an event hosted by the school and attended by Harvard graduate and current Sacramento Republic Professional Player, Andrew Wheeler-Omiunu. The event was held as one of many in a series of College and Career lunch events that students are invited and encouraged to attend at EGCS to learn more about career options and paths. 

Students got to hear from Andrew about his various experiences in school and his career. The event was held virtually and in-person for students to attend and ask Andrew questions. He was able to discuss his time at Harvard as he pursued a degree in economics and his time playing professional soccer. Currently in his 5th season as a professional soccer player, he currently plays for the Sacramento Republic FC and previously won the MLS Cup in 2018 with Atlanta United.

Students at Elk Grove Charter School were thrilled to hear from him and learn about his life experiences. The interactive event was beneficial to all who attended, including staff and teachers.
