On October 6th PT&E Scholar Athletes and their families, board members, staff and former staff, and friends gathered together to celebrate the amazing work our beloved Coach Danice has done for our organization. Her 11 years of service and leadership as Executive Director of PT&E has seen the organization transform into a holistic year-round program that impacts the lives of 1,500 kids each year.
There was no way we could properly honor Coach Danice but we did our best as we rang in her retirement with a night of revelry. It was an evening filled with joy and reminiscing as we enjoyed delicious food made by our PT&E families, listened to music played by Scholar Athletes and of course, played tennis. Court 2 at the St. Johns Racquet Center was renamed Coach Danice’s Court and Danice played the first point on the newly dedicated court (she ripped a shot past our new Executive Director Jorge Fuenmayor).
Words cannot express how much we love and appreciate you Coach Danice. You have impacted the lives of every single member of the PT&E family. Have fun in retirement, you deserve it. We know we will see you back at the St. Johns Racquet Center soon!
Check-out these photos from the evening as well as a few throwbacks from Danice’s 11 years at the helm of PT&E.
