Norris Congratulates Akron Varsity Softball Team

On Friday, May 25th Assemblyman Mike Norris had the pleasure of presenting the Akron High School Varsity Softball Team with an official Citation from New York State for their incredible humanitarian efforts with their “Just Build It” Campaign. The team collected softball equipment and school supplies and donated the items to students in Bani, Dominican Republic, then traveled to the Dominican to spend three days teaching and playing softball using the equipment they had worked so hard to collect, in addition to building a masonry wall for the school, painting and contributing to other labor-intensive work that directly affected the plans to support what will be greatly improved educational infrastructure for children coming to the Nutrition Center. Norris said “I could not be more proud of these exemplary students, and their efforts should be admired and used as an example for our entire community.”
