My Students

Our Lady Bison student athletes are some of the hardest working young ladies around. I teach and coach in an urban setting and most, if not all, of the student athletes are on a free or reduced lunch. Generational poverty is a constant threat to all of my students but particularly to the student athlete, that often goes to school, participates in athletics and also has started their working life as well. Even with continual cuts to our school's/district's athletic budget, which determines our look on the court, our girls continue to work hard in both the classroom and on the court to not let it affect their spirit and determination.

What makes me proudest to be associated with these young people is that we have had 100% graduation rate, and close to 90% of the young ladies continue on to some type of post-secondary education since we have opened the doors to OCS some ten years ago.

My Project

The Nike socks will give the student athletes a sense of unity and confidence as they will all look the same as they take the floor. The Slipnot offers safety for our student athletes before each game, it will assure that traction will not be an issue.

These Nike backpacks from Dicks Sporting Goods will help the student athletes transport their uniforms, basketball shoes and personal items to and from school each day and have a dedicated backpack for just sports.

They can be used by multiple teams during different seasons, as well. They will be able to travel with a dedicated Nike bag for their gear and not have to unpack their book bags in the locker room looking for their gear.
