MaCarthur South Career Day

Roger Martinez won 4/5 at PCS

Former School Board member Frank Cobos gets schooled by Roger Martinez

I attended "Career Day" at YMAACD @ MacArthur South last week. Joseph Terrano also teaches a chess elective class. I spoke to three different groups. I ran into Frank Cobos during breakfast and chatted about the chess program. He says chess was very important during his youth. He says it helped him develop many skills he still uses today. The next day I returned to visit the chess class from 7:30 am to 9:10. We took a demo board, DVDs, and chess sets. Alex Villafuerte (1968) came with me and gave a strong lesson. Roger Martinez and Stuart Ortiz both played a PCS tournament this past Saturday and did very well. Roger tied for first place.
