The New Tao of Leadership

Friday, June 3rd, 2016

According to Ray Blackwell of the Syracuse Boys & Girls Club, the best kind of leaders are servant leaders. During an appearance at the Public Service Leadership Academy @ Fowler High School, he said that the keys to servant leadership are generosity, humility and compassion.

Quest for Perfection

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

Not everyone in Syracuse has given up on an undefeated season. Last weekend we found out about another Team Orange that is doing work on the court at the East Fayette Street Boys & Girls Club. The Syracuse Team for Biddy Basketball, coached by Dean Crouch, remained the top seed as they used pressure defense, superior guard play and backboard dominance to dispose of Marquette on Saturday. The team, made up of children from the SCSD,  is now 7-0, and retains a number one ranking heading into the playoffs.

The plot line for the game included best friends turned rivals, and even brother against brother on the sidelines (Dean’s brother Danard is Marquette’s coach). Syracuse may have won by double digits, but the game was certainly competitive.

We wish Syracuse the best as they barrel toward perfection.
