My Students

My students are high school juniors, sophomores, and freshmen. All of my students rank at or near the top of their class. They are proficient in science and math. They also display an aptitude for technology.

Since my students have shown that they are strong in math and science, I am urging them to focus on their academics for scholarship consideration.

They are aware that there is a great deal of academic money, I hope to be able to provide some information to help them with college.

My Project

The equipment that I've asked for will be used to reestablish the baseball team. The introduction of these items will be the foundation that the baseball program will be built on. These basic items will allow those inexperienced players to develop at faster pace. And the more experienced players will become more proficient more rapidly also.

My hope is to help my students qualify for and pursue some academic scholarships.

I plan to use baseball as a springboard to a college education for the students. The items on the list will help provide the students with the free time to not be worried on how to pay for their fees.
