Our heartfelt thanks for supporting the San Antonio Spurs and Silver & Black Give Back throughout the season. We are so grateful to have shared this season with you.
Through your support and involvement with Silver & Black Give Back, we have been able to make a great impact on San Antonio and the larger community. You'll find a few quotes below from teachers whose students were involved in this year's Team Up Challenge.
"I think their involvement in an important community service project was awesome. It helped them become more confident and we saw many emerge as class leaders. Plus, I think kids want to be part of something bigger than themselves and Team Up Challenge did that for them." - Team Up Challenge Captain
"As a teacher, I want to know that my students will be okay without me. One day, they won't have me around, whether it's next year or when they go off to college. I want to know they will be successful no matter what -- that they can take on any obstacle. My students have become leaders on campus and advocates for higher education thanks to the Team Up Challenge." - Team Up Challenge Captain
Silver Stars' forward Shenise Johnson spent an afternoon with Summer Team Up Challenge students at the East side Boys & Girls Club with their project.
Johnson worked with the group on team building skills, focusing on communication and working together. The group talked about their personal goals for the project and their own futures, and Johnson shared her own story.
The East side Boys & Girls Club is focusing their project on education their peers about at-risk behaviors and the consequences that can come from their actions. They encourage healthy risk and a focus on the future.
