Basketball gets Better and Better
Last fall a generous U.S. donor, Dr. Darel Moss, funded a basketball court at CISS, in honor of a young woman
from his hometown Brookline, Massachusetts, who loved basketball and who was tragically killed in a bicycle
accident. The CISS parents did their part and spent a scorching day leveling a section of the hard pan
dirt to accommodate the court. Just before twilight, the standards, hoops and net were up.
Yes, basketball is a popular sport, even in remote Ngomano where the Clay students,
despite no court to practice on, have finished high in the district ranks for the past few years.
Since the court was installed in October, the students have had much practice for their competitions
in the regional meets. Now they can perfect their game with a new and improved paved surface on
the court recently installed by the maintenance staff. All they need now is sneakers.

Continued thanks to First Republic Bank whose directors graciously hosted a second
PEI event in their New York City headquarters on May 22. Board members (Chair) Bob Wax
and Bonnie Wax joined with friends and colleagues introducing them to PEI and the Clay School.
Kiondos were sold, new friends got engaged, and wonderful people came to spend time hearing about
CISS and its compelling successes.
