Former Globetrotter and world record holder visits BPES

Eight-time Guinness World Record holder and former Harlem Globetrotter Corey Rich visited Broadalbin-Perth Elementary School Thursday, Dec. 15 to show the students some of his famous tricks as part of the school’s PBIS Patriot Days. The gymnasium was filled with smiles, laughter and joy as Rich demonstrated his tricks and played interactive games with students, including a basketball version of “hot potato.” 


In addition to the entertainment, Rich shared a message of pursuing your passions and never giving up on your dreams. He emphasized to students the importance of staying in school and how success in the classroom can translate to other parts of life.
