August 16: Lizzie B., Marcy
Elizabeth, who prefers her nickname, Lizzie, is an outgoing fourth-year player at Marcy Tennis Club. In addition to using skillful footwork and movement on the court this weekend, she showed a lot of positive energy. Particularly insightful—and uplifting—was the artwork Lizzie made during Educational Coordinator Gary's off-court session. Instructed to create her own puzzle piece along with the other students, Lizzie drew an equal sign to represent her belief that all people are equal.
Our "Student of the Week" feature is updated every Wednesday to recognize one player's outstanding behavior and/or effort from the previous Saturday class. Each honoree is selected through the careful review of our Site Leaders and Educational Coordinators.
