When Kate Kelley ’06 took the court for her second season with the Bentley women’s basketball team, she was determined to bounce back from a disappointing freshman year.
“I had played less than a minute,” Kelley remembers. “Coach Stevens said, ‘Make me play you. If you’re good enough, you’ll play.’”
She stepped up to the challenge, and finished her career as co-captain of a Falcons team that was ranked nationally.
Determination and basketball are again in play for Kelley’s latest endeavor: helping youth in Rwanda to heal after a decade of genocide.
