It’s not every day that the students of Hendley Elementary have John Walton, voice of Capitals Radio Network, emceeing their class assembly.
Walton was on site at the Southeast DC school to introduce three special guests from the Washington Capitals: Nicklas Backstrom, Braden Holtby, and Tom Wilson, who delivered 75 laptops and 45 tablets as ambassadors for the So Kids Can charity.
“DC’s always embraced us, we’ve got amazing fans, an amazing support system. It’s fun to get back into the city, help out, have fun with the kids and that’s what it’s all about,” said Wilson in an interview with Fox 5 DC. “It’s definitely home to us now.”
