Silver Linings of Talbot County donated funds for a new goal for the St. Michaels High School girls’ field hockey team.
The Owner of Silver Linings, Aida Leisure, was inspired to make this gift from her own experiences as a student athlete. “Participating in athletics taught me many important life lessons, and I wanted to support similar experiences for the young women in our community. While participating in sports, these young women develop lifelong friendships and learn the value of teamwork and exercising the mind and body – all important lessons that are experienced outside of the classroom.”
The $1,760 gift will buy a new goal, which will be used exclusively for games. The contribution will support the limited budget of the school’s athletic department so new equipment can be purchased.
Leisure continued, “Businesses need to step up to support the needs of our students that have been impacted by so many cutbacks in school funding. Extracurricular activities play an important role in education and a child’s development, and we need to ensure those opportunities remain available and our students are getting a well-rounded education in and out of the classroom.”
The new goal will arrive within the month and will be used for the remainder of the Fall 2011 season.
