Wisconsin students show support for Erin Hamlin

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Olympic luger Erin Hamlin has plenty of fans in the Mohawk Valley.

But she also has a big fan club at an elementary school in Milwaukee. Horace Mann Elementary has adopted Erin as their Olympic athlete to follow and made a video for Hamlin.

Stephanie Ticali teaches the students, who are part of a program called Classroom Champions. The program pairs Olympic hopefuls with students in high-need areas. Each month, Hamlin sends the students messages about how to set a goal, persevere and be successful despite difficulties.

As a thank you, they made this video.
