SCORES students receive letter from Seattle Mayor!

During our spring program, our poet-athletes worked together to write a letter based on Barrack Obama's "Yes We Can" speech. They split into small groups and filled in parts of the speech based on their own ideas about what problems plague our communities.

SCORES staff collected the students' signatures and mailed the letters to local and national leaders. Last week, we received an exciting response from Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels!
