March 2013 Coach of the Month

  1. Updates

Erica Savage is Playworks Durham’s March Coach of the Month. Erica is a first year AmeriCorps coach at Bethesda Elementary School. She’s always optimistic and ever ready to pitch in when needed!

Coach Savage is doing an excellent job with her program and involving the school community. Her recesses are filled with continuous “good job” and “nice try” cheers–a sure sign that she has been working extra hard to create a healthy community at recess. Along with rocking recess, she has been extremely diligent in recruiting and coaching a full team for both girls’ basketball and co-ed volleyball. Coach Savage also assisted in taking the lead in planning an amazing service project in March for her fellow AmeriCorps members.

She has also gone above and beyond her duties by initiating the planning process for the spring Boys’ Basketball Jamboree and helping lead her school’s faculty basketball team to a victory.

Erica has worked extremely hard completing the monthly reflection series and attending all the community building events to bond with her AmeriCorps members.

More than anything she is one of these greatest “4-pic-1-word” players of all time!

So for this and so much more, we congratulate our March Coach of the Month with a Ballin’ CLAP!
