I am writing in appreciation for the time you spent in the PGC 1-on-1 mentoring program with my daughter Kendall Harris. Her time with you meant a lot to her. She didn’t want to share much with my wife and me because she said “this is my thing, Dad”, but I can certainly tell that she was impacted.
Kendall took all the trainings very seriously and was always eager to meet with you. She has improved her skills – in particularly shooting – quite a bit during this pandemic. Your time with her helped enhance her performance and provide motivation to get out in the driveway each day. Confidence (tied to having a terrible mistake response) has been a tremendous issue with her and I hope she can move in a more positive direction towards her goal of having a successful next 3 years in high school, with hopes of playing in college.
Thank you for serving Kendall this past month,
— Mike Harris, Parent
