Jaron Pierre is an exceptional young man who exhibits the spirit of what he means to be a team player. While leading our team in scoring he is also mentoring the younger players by showing them what it takes to excel in the classroom and basketball court. He always shows great initiative and diligence; he is able to develop intelligent plans and implement them successfully. He has demonstrated admirable leadership skills. Many new students in the school have sought his advice, and many have shared with me their appreciation of his pleasant, encouraging attitude.
