Felton Factor Hits the Road

Miguel, Jasmine, Natisha, and Ristom (left to right with Coaches Anna Becker, John Block and Fitz Paccione) from the Felton Factor participated in a Challenger-level tournament at the Sprinker Tennis Center in Tacoma, WA on March 22-24. Facing tough competition, they had fun, learned much, and held their own. Congratulations, scholar athletes, for bringing home trophies in the 12 and Under Divisions! Our young Felton Factor scholar athletes are making their benefactor, Matt Felton (former Board Chair) very proud!

I have a dream for me!

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, PAST&E scholar athletes shared their dreams. We were moved by their thoughts and wishes for themselves, their families and the world around them. El día de Martin Luther King Jr., los atletas escolares PAST&E compartieron sus sueños. Nos pasaron por sus pensamientos y deseos para sí mismos, sus familias y el mundo.

Three scholar athletes wanted to share their dreams with you.
