The HSBC School of Excellence graduates were acknowledged in the presence of the HSBC Pro Soccer, Bridge to Success participants. The graduates expanded their skills both on and off the field by taking classes, gaining work experience and soccer training every day.

David Bascome said; “Today’s graduates have showcased to their peers the results of their work experience which included developing a marketing plan for Hope 4 Life, an initiative against drug abuse and gang violence. The HSBC School of Excellence students also worked along side coaches to discover what it takes to manage the HSBC Pro Soccer Clinic.”
