St. Andrew’s School is Savannah’s choice for meaningful hands-on learning where students are excited to go to school.
St. Andrew’s, an independent college preparatory school dedicated to personalized student development, strives to develop engaged, well-rounded individuals by inspiring a passion for knowledge, a commitment to personal integrity and a deepened social consciousness within a supportive educational community.
St. Andrew’s School announces plans for a community-wide program on Thursday, February 23 which highlights the history of basketball. The program, designed for all ages, begins at 7 p.m. in Compton Gym, St. Andrew’s School, 601 Penn Waller Road, Savannah 31410.
The history of basketball will be presented by actor Clyk Cozart, former collegiate and ABA athlete Jim Dawson, former Globetrotter Larry “Gator” Rivers, and sports publicist Keith Zimmerman. And for the first time, the Olympic Berg Ball will be on display. This is the winning basketball used by the American team in the 1936 Berlin hosted Olympics, the first year basketball was a part of the Olympic games. Later this year, the gold medal ball will be auctioned off at a starting bid of $1 million.
“Sporting events have the unique power of bringing people together and this program is designed to do just that,” said Dr. Kelley Waldron, Head of St. Andrew’s School. “By highlighting the history of basketball, these presenters will share how coming together across differences for common purposes leads to a better community and helps develop cultural understanding.”
The evening program is free and open to the public.
