Yesterday morning, my student teacher aide, Betsy Kelly, committed to play field hockey for Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas. Betsy's road to college athletics is an interesting one. Since WCS has no field hockey program, Betsy played with the young ladies from Lamar High School, a large public school in Houston. A goalkeeper, Betsy becomes the first Westbury Christian alumni to play field hockey collegiately. She also has represented our school interscholastically, both swimming and playing soccer for the Wildcats where she also played in the goal. Betsy will be an art major at Hendrix, considered one of the best academic institutions in the South. On a personal level, I will miss Betsy who is by far my most creative aide ever and a young lady who I greatly rely on. Betsy is pictured above with her father, Thomas, and her Lamar coach. What you cannot see is her thirty-plus WCS classmates who shared the moment with her. All I can say is that as of today, I'm a big Hendrix Warrior fan. Betsy is now in the big leagues.
