sports museum hosts 2018 stand strong graduation
The Sports Museum hosted its 2018 Stand Strong Graduation on June 4 at TD Garden in Legends.
Members of the Jordan Boys and Girls Club of Chelsea received framed certificates of completion at the ceremony that was led by Sports Museum Director of Education Michelle Gormley.
Sports Museum Executive Director Rusty Sullivan and Northeastern University basketball star Jeremy Miller held a question-and-answer session for the youths.
Miller responded to questions such as: How tall are you? (6-foot, 9 and three-quarter-inches); What is your favorite NBA team? (San Antonio Spurs; and When will you enter the NBA draft? (in 2019).
The youths appreciated Miller’s story about how he kept a positive attitude after sustaining a knee injury in his freshman season. Miller worked hard during the rehabilitation process and became a star player on a very good Northeastern team that will contend for an NCAA Tournament berth again next season.
Miller said that some of his outside-of-basketball interests are improvisational comedy, acting, and music. Miller was a huge hit with the youths, graciously posing for photographs and signing autographs.
Stand Strong is a 12-week interactive character development program focusing on the core values of Teamwork, Courage, Fairness, Determination, and Responsibilty.
The Stand Strong curriculum includes a number of field trips where students engage in fun activities centered on the aspects of character.
