Elijah Hughes visits with the seventh and 10th grade health classes

On Monday, May 9,  Mrs. Ebeling's seventh grade health class had a last minute surprise visitor from NBA Portland Trail Blazer player Elijah Hughes. 

For the past few weeks, seventh grade classes have been working with Project AIM to help them create goals for a healthy and productive future. One of the representatives who has been joining the health class, Selena Hughes, is the sister of Elijah and was able to set up a time for him to visit. 

He spoke about his journey to the NBA and success and roadblocks he had to face to  achieve his goal of playing professional basketball. Members of the 10th grade health class were able to join to hear him speak as well. 

Elijah previously played for the Utah Jazz and Syracuse University.
