Berry and Louie spoke to area youth as part of the educational project Stand Strong (Gil Talbot).
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard women’s basketball senior co-captains Brogan Berry and Lindsay Louie spent time last week speaking to Boston area youth as part of the educational project Stand Strong, a 13-week sport and character education program sponsored by The Sports Museum.
Berry and Louie’s involvement came on the final night of the project during Stand Strong’s annual wrap up party at the TD Bank Garden. The two spoke about teamwork, determination, courage, fairness and responsibility before opening the floor to questions and answers from the audience. A ceremony was then held to honor the children who had completed the program before the group attended that night’s hockey game between the Boston Bruins and Calgary Flames.
“Brogan and I had a great time meeting and speaking with the youth that completed the Stand Strong program,” Louie commented. “They all were very excited to be at the Garden and to receive their certificates of completion at the ceremony. During the ceremony, Brogan and I were invited to do a question and answer session with the kids and they were eager to find out if we were going to play in the WNBA. It was a great experience, and a great way to get off campus”
Stand Strong, the hallmark educational program of The Sports Museum, includes a number of field trips which allow participating children to engage in activities centered around aspects of character and building teamwork. To learn more about Stand Strong, click here.
