A Trip Down Memory Lane to Harborfields High School

Today’s blog features PPI Director of Finances, Human Resources & Administration Taylor Brown. Taylor is a graduate of Harborfields High School in Greenlawn, New York. He recently had the special opportunity to work with some of their students on a class project.

Last week, three 10th grade girls (Ava, Mikayla and Caroline) from Ms. Da Silva’s Advance Placement World History class from Harborfields High School in Greenlawn, New York, reached out randomly to PeacePlayers for a class project.  Their assignment from Ms. Da Silva was to research and interview an international non profit organization and present their findings to the class.

As coincidence and luck would have it, PPI’s Taylor Brown just happened to graduate from Harborfields in 2002, played on the men’s Varsity basketball team and would be in town for his sister’s wedding that coming weekend. So, on Friday December 12th, Taylor stopped by his high school alma mater. He met the girls working on the class project, Ms. Da Silva and spoke about his experiences with PeacePlayers, his time at Harborfields and how he ended up being fortunate enough to join such an incredible organization.

Taylor also got the chance to meet with the current New York state winning Harborfields High School Men’s Varsity Basketball coach, Chris Agostino, and is planning to join the team for some of their practices over Christmas break.

Ms. Da Silva’s class votes next week to determine which of the organizations they’d like to support.  Let’s hope they choose PPI!
