It’s a “Hat Trick”, Congratulations to all our Tiger AAA players in their accomplishments this season! On and off the ice the Tigers organization made great strides with our student athletes. Thirty-one Tiger players were recognized by the NAPHL Academic Honor Roll. My love of education guided my path to the Tigers organization when I heard they were looking for an Academic Advisor. It has been a rewarding year working with the young men known as the Tigers.
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I feel this is demonstrated by our players through their dedication to excel academically, training to compete on the ice and overall character they exhibit to those they encounter. I know firsthand how much self-motivation, time management, and desire to succeed these players have put forth. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the players, parents and coaches. It was my pleasure to help support their educational needs and monitor their overall growth.
Thanks for the opportunity to express my joy of working with the players, coaches and parents this year.
Congratulations to all of our players and parents we are very proud of all of you and this accomplishment!
