High School Player Gives Back to First Stick
By Brian Logue
Earlier this year, the US Lacrosse Foundation staff received a truly heartwarming letter. Jack Camp, a senior at Wayne Central (N.Y.) High School, sent in a note with a donation to the US Lacrosse First Stick Program. We can tell you what he said, but his own words say it all:
My name is Jack Camp. I am a senior at Wayne Central High School in Ontario, New York. For a graduation requirement, all seniors have to do a senior project including a research paper, event and a presentation. For my topic I focused on the benefits of high school sports and for my product held a lacrosse camp to promote the sport, and the proceeds from that I have decided to donate to the First Stick Program. I have seen some of the great things you have done with this program in Lacrosse Magazine and hope in some way this benefits at least one child and gives them the same love for the game that I share.
Thank you for all that you do for the game of lacrosse.
Jack – US Lacrosse thanks you for your generous gift to help support the First Stick Program, and for the example you’ve set.
