In conclusion I want to once again thank our Sponsor Arkansas Blue Cross Blue Shield for their support. Also I want to recognize the Arkansas Cup Series and the foundation they founded to provide tennis equipment for children in the state. Marcelles Nash, is the first recipient of the Arkansas Cup Tennis Foundation junior player’s package sponsored by Head. Marcelles was introduced to tennis through the Benton Parks and Recreation program in 2015 and was immediately hooked! He has been playing every since in tournaments, group lessons and last year made the Benton High School tennis team. Not only does Marcelles excel in tennis, but he is also a great student! He is on the "A" Honor roll, in the Honor Society, and made all region band and jazz band playing the tenor saxophone. He is also very active in his home church leading worship service. His mom said that he is a great chef at home as well!!! Great job Marcelles, looking forward to seeing great things from you on and off the court!!
