US Chess Executive Director Ranae Bartlett also notes, “We were delighted to have a number of chess programs attend this year’s National High School Championship that were part of our Title I School Grant initiative, including ASAP (After School Activities Partnership), Baltimore Kids Chess League, Lenoir City Schools, and S. Weir Mitchell School. This program reflects US Chess goals and delivers on our mission to empower people, enrich lives, and enhance communities through chess as we bring chess to students who might not be able to access the game without this support. Our donors’ generosity underscores the chess community’s commitment to meeting the needs of students who come from underserved communities.”
