My Students

My students/players are a diverse group of great kids from a small rural area of Louisiana. All of them want to achieve, but many face barriers to academic success, including challenges outside of the school setting. A positive thing that many of my students share is a love of wrestling and pride in our school!

Sadly, our program was almost cut this year due to lack of funding and staffing changes.

These kids work hard every day to ensure that we keep our program alive.

My goal is to help all of my students achieve success both on and off of the mat.

My Project

In the summer, the wrestling team will be clearing out and re-doing the wrestling portable. It is in very bad shape and needs a lot of work done to it. We will be in need of a lot of things but this locker in particular will be a huge help.

This is where your donations will help!

This locker gives us a chance to not only store singlets but also cleaning supplies and equipment. Help me give these boys a place to call home and be proud of all the work they will do to this wrestling portable. Thanks!
