Gaining Perseverance and the Spirit of Sportsmanship for a Lifetime
Athletics at MCDS have helped me become a better person because I learned how to time manage and to commit. You see a bigger picture on a team and realize your role and importance. It has taught me the struggle of work, but also the satisfaction gained from accomplishment.
