Wilfong's Non-Profit is a Slam Dunk!

PDS Alum and sophomore basketball walk-on at SMU Jonathan Wilfong '07 started a non-profit program called Coaching for Literacy.  During middle school, Wilfong began to notice that a teammate on his AAU team could not read.  Wilfong was motivated to change that for his teammate and for others!  Wilfong continues to raise awareness and financial support - hoping to one day eradicate illiteracy.  Wilfong's coach says that he is "an unbelievable teammate and an unbelievable role model", and PDS agrees!  And by the way...Wilfong can dunk!
