CBE grad and board member William Zhu with teammates Burke Snowden, Sam Amer, Greg Herman, and Arjun Dhir prevailed in the Michael Seaman Junior United States Bridge Championships to be able to represent the US as USA2 in the World Junior Teams. Zhu and teammates will compete in Shanghai summer 2018.
In the past two weeks, I have reconnected with two CBE alumni, Kendrick Chow and Samuel Kuang. After many positive teaching experiences in the bridge world, both are considering jobs as tutors and teachers in the SF school district. When CBE entered my life 9 years ago, I didn’t realize how long our relationship would be. When I chaperoned Kendrick and Samuel, (Edmund and Jason) to DC for the Youth NABC, who knew that they would become so hooked on bridge and on giving back to their community? CBE continues to support youth to learn the game of bridge. I hope you will consider a financial contribution or volunteering your passion to introduce more young people to this wonderful game.
