My Students

This is the Girls volleyball program of Chicago Roosevelt High School. The before I took over the girls were 0-16. Last year the girls finished with third in conference and with an overall record of 11-14. The girls qualified for the City and state playoffs. Thanks to and their donors our girls took the volleyball skills to another level. We hope to continue to improve and become one of the best teams in the city of Chicago. Please help us to continue our historic success.

My Project

My students need new volleyball materials materials for the upcoming volleyball season. With the help of our team improved from 0-16 to 11-14. We need a new cart because the one we had last has holes in it and the wheel came off. We need new knee pads to help us prepare for games during practice and to help us compete in the games. We need new mesh bag to help with storage of our volleyball equipment and to help us carry our volleyballs and equipment to each game. Thank you very much to and all their donors that continue to support our program. We love you all!
