SquashBusters has been in full swing this fall - a senior earns well-deserved recognition, our seventh graders join the team, the class of 2019 reflects on their time with SQB, the staff continues to look for ways to make our programs even better, and some alumni hit the courts!
The Christian Science Monitor talks to SquashBusters staff, alumni and students about how the unique program is "transforming young lives" through squash, academics, community service and mentoring.
In June, SquashBusters closed the books on its twentieth program year. It was another season of record-breaking achievement, recently capped off by the Urban Individual Nationals, where our students demonstrated incredible tenacity, talent and sportsmanship. In our June update, you can read about the tournament as well as the plans of the class of 2016, the MFS SquashBusters Derby, and some comings and goings on our Board of Directors.
Governor Charlie Baker dropped in on squash practice at the SquashBusters center at Northeastern University, to talk to students in the SquashBusters program about the importance of education and hard work.
In a fantastic interview with Hilary Sargent, SquashBusters founder and CEO Greg Zaff talked about the history of the program, how it has grown from a program serving 24 kids using borrowed courts and classrooms, and how urban squash became a worldwide movement that has served over 2000 youth since it began twenty years ago.
