December 2, 2022 – Fifth and sixth grade basketball players at Dorris Intermediate School have the benefit of getting know real high school basketball players and learning what it takes to play prep sports through the Kahoks as Mentors program.
Kahoks as Mentors pairs JV/Varsity Collinsville High School Basketball players with fledgling basketball players from DIS. High school student-athletes work with the younger students to mentor them on the sacrifices, responsibilities, commitment and motivation required to be involved in high school sports. Along the way, the mentors also work with students on various basketball skills.
The Kahoks as Mentors partnership is assisted by DIS teachers Holli Lorsbach and Brian Baca.
