Okay, not the biggest Carmelo Anthony basketball fan, but he did shoot this video at my high school alma mater in New York City.
Carmelo Anthony at Regis:
In many ways, the people in and around the hallways of Regis on September 29th were no different than on any ordinary Saturday. There were students participating in a Hearn Tournament, studious 8th graders filling REACH Program classrooms, and department faculty busy gearing up for an upcoming Parents Back-To-School night.
But there was one uncommon presence: 6ft 8in, 5-time NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony. The standout Small Forward for the New York Knicks was on location in the Chemistry Laboratory to shoot a video for an upcoming vitamin commercial. Before leaving Regis, Anthony, a 2012 Gold Medalist at the London Olympic Games, graciously posed for photos, spoke with a few students, and left an autographed basketball behind in the Chemistry Lab as a "thank you" to the Science department.And if you are in the Scranton area, we have former NBA player John Amaechi on campus for an October 18 talk on promoting an inclusive, culturally competent, and mindful environment, free of bullying and harassment.
