Fencing in the Schools

Designers often have lives outside of being creative for our Clients.
I had the good fortune, at the request of the Kravet Showroom Manager at 200 Lex, Sheela Herr (and her son John), to attend Duel for the School, a fundraising Event sponsored by Fencing in the Schools, an organization founded by US Olympic Silver Medalist in Fencing, Tim Morehouse.
Fencing in the Schools allows kids who don’t normally excel in either Team Sports or other more physically demanding Individual Sports the opportunity to experience the confidence building, camaraderie, and the competition of Fencing.
This was a terrific event, for a wonderful cause and one that brought back pleasant and vivid memories of my own Fencing days.
