Proviso East Graduate Shannon Brown Honored for NBA Championship...

Proviso East Graduate Shannon Brown of Maywood will be honored on Saturday, July 18, 2009 with a parade in his honor. The parade will kick off at 9am at Lexington School in Maywood. Brown, a 2001 graduate of Proviso East High School and 2005 graduate from Michigan State University, was a part of the Los Angeles Lakers this past season. Brown and the Lakers defeated the Orlando Magic to win the NBA World Championship. Brown is the third Proviso East graduate in a row to win an NBA ring. Michael Finley of the San Antonio Spurs won in 2007. Glen "Doc" Rivers, head coach of the Boston Celtics won last year, and Brown this year. Kudos to these student-athletes aka champs!

Its finally good to see that you have the opportunity to report some positive news. I'm sure with a little investigating, more will come.

While it's good to see something positive about Maywood, I wish we would see young people earning distinction in education - math, science, or medical studies, or for their volunteerism to help the community or the world at large. Now THAT would be something to shout about!
