Student becomes Champion and Team Leader
October 1, 2013
It wasn’t always that way – like so many boys his age, street sports ruled and team sports were nonexistent before MECI started its comprehensive after-school program in this small, remote Palestinian village. Respect for teammates, sportsman-like conduct, representing his village and school in sports events challenged him to new heights of performance.
When time came for the first village marathon, Osama lined up for the start and crossed the finish line first. He won the overall school sports tournament and was honored with a trophy in front of the entire school and his family.
During the 2013 MECI summer camp program, Osama became a team leader and a positive agent, not only encouraging his teams to win, but the first in line to show them how to congratulate the winning team when he came in second. We salute Osama and all the boys and girls participating in MECI sports who are terrific role models and inspire hope through sports.
