“All of these scholarship finalists deserve our praise and admiration,” said Evan Hochberg, Deloitte’s National Leader of Community Involvement. “We at Deloitte see these student-athletes as the embodiment of hard work and an ethical approach to competition, traits that serve us well in business and all other endeavors. That is why this year we are helping to expand the Triple-Impact Competitor Scholarship Program from its roots in the San Francisco and Sacramento areas to include Chicago, Houston, New York and Washington, DC.”

“The power of the Triple-Impact Competitor model is hard to overestimate,” said PCA Founder Jim Thompson. “Deloitte’s support as presenting sponsor allows this program to have a national impact. I am grateful to Deloitte and Thrive Foundation for Youth for their willingness to partner with us on this. We are all looking forward in the near future to seeing high school athletic programs graduate thousands of Triple-Impact Competitors year after year into a society that very much needs them.”
