FAVORITE MEMORY FROM HIGH SCHOOL
One of the best memories I had in high school was winning the 2018 Chess State Tournament with the chess team. We were so excited when we won and held our trophy high.
THE TEACHER WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE
Our chess club coach David McPherson has taught me how to play chess over the past few years and created a love for the game within me. More importantly, he’s helped me build strong friendships with the other members on the team, which is something a quiet person like myself often has difficulty doing.
