James Naismith's Mask

Subject

James Naismith

Description

This post, by @springfieldcollege on Instagram, depicts a maroon and white mask labeled "Springfield College" covering the face of the renowned James Naismith statue on campus. Its caption urges Springfield College students and faculty to play their part by protecting themselves with a do-it-yourself mask which can be made out of a Springfield College T-shirt.

Coverage

I chose this post because it persuades the Springfield College community to take protective measures and implementations. James Naismith is a predecessor we all look up upon, so his contribution and caution on this pandemic issue is taken seriously. This post will inform later viewers that all Springfield College affiliates were directly affected and took part in healthy practices as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. It is important to remember how important it is for us all to play our part to hinder the spread of the disease, and that doing something as simple as wearing a do-it-yourself mask can make a big difference.
