The Chicago Hockey Initiative was thrilled to award two more Microgrants to twin brothers John and David. The twins are CPS middle school students and their relatively recent involvement in ice hockey is due to the direct recommendation of their teacher, Mr. Delaurentis. Mr. Delaurentis wrote in praise of both boys. When asked how the boys demonstrate classroom citizenship, he wrote, “I see it everyday in John. He is always available to help someone in need.” In support of David, he wrote, “He always gives his best effort and supports his teammates and classmates alike!” The CHI was so excited to sponsor summer hockey camp for the boys so they can continue to develop their on-ice skills in compliment to their off-ice citizenship!
