Programs like our are chock full of stories. We have young people who immigrated to the United States and have mesmerizing stories of their journey. We have staff members who attended our nation's finest and most prestigious schools, but yearn to work with schools and programs that serve high-need youth. We have young people who hit bottom in terms of school performance and get to the preceppice of dropping out, but then find the resolve and focus to climb back into the game.

Programs like Project Coach are filled with stories. Sports is also a space of stories and words. I make this case in the video below that focuses on my 'part-time gig' as the play-by-play commentator for the Smith College Pioneers. Enjoy.

And watch the final game of the season against Wellesley.
