Alumni Spotlight: Mo'ne Davis ’19 Featured in New York Times

Mo'ne Davis ’19 rocketed to fame when she was still a student at SCH and the pitcher of the Taney Dragons team that went all the way to the Little League World Series and became the first girl to win and pitch a shutout. Now pursuing a sports management degree at Columbia University, she's the profile subject of an article in The New York Times. Weighing in on Davis' success in the article is a fellow SCH alumnus and Taney catcher Scott Bandura ’20 who, says Davis, she "loves like a brother." Bandura was recently drafted by the San Francisco Giants. 

This week, Davis began her pursuit of a master’s degree in the Ivy League’s only graduate sports management program, where, according to The New York Times, she is "undoubtedly the only student who has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, won an ESPY, written a book, starred in a commercial directed by Spike Lee and met Barack and Michelle Obama in the White House."
