Athletic Leadership Program Welcomes Gold Medalist

Cushing welcomed 1984 Olympic gymnastics gold medalist Tim Daggett on December 6 as part of the Academy’s Athletic Leadership Program. Daggett spoke to students about his rise to success, hardships due to injury, and the importance of a support system. Daggett is currently the primary commentator for NBC gymnastics and operates a gymnastics facility in western Massachusetts. His visit was a great motivator to start off the week!
