My Students

Our students come from across our city and our entire school qualifies for free lunch and transportation to and from school based on the fact that the majority of our students live below the poverty level.

Despite the issues facing our students, they come to school every day and persevere.

Most every student attends college post-graduation. Our students need any support available, as our school and district often cannot provide the resources necessary for our students to compete with other high schools in our region.

My Project

Playing makes a huge difference to the student-athletes who are on our Boys Varsity basketball team. It allows our team to bond with one another and it allows the boys to work on their skills all summer like the professional athletes they admire. Camaraderie increased teamwork, and improved play is just a few of the benefits of playing in summer tournaments, and added college exposure opportunities as well. The team has played every summer and enjoyed great success on and off the court during those seasons. We are hoping to go again this year.

After the trip is completed, our players come back home with a better understanding of their teammates and coaches.

This understanding often springboards us into a more successful season, both on and off the court. This project will pay for entry fees for students who could not afford the trip on their own. We are hoping to cover their expenses to create an experience for the entire Boys Basketball team that everyone will remember.
