Get Started: The Basics, is SportsHopes high school to college pathway presentation for student-athletes.. On August 17 we showed the presentation in power-point format at a local gathering, handed out paper copies that reflected the pathway information and handed out the 2016-2017 NCAA “Follow Your Path” brochure. Thanks much to parents and student-athletes who came to learn and share and to local mom Wina Burnama for hosting the meeting at her house. (L-R front row): mom Wina Burnama, mom Maria G.
