Meet Buzwe.  Buzwe is a Grade 11 student at Nathaniel Nyaluza High School in the Grahamstown Township.  Buzwe is a quiet, hard working, and extremely polite teenager who LOVES soccer.   Almost everyday for the past year we’ve been working with Buzwe at the Holy Cross Resource Center (a place where Holy Cross scholarship kids can come for tutoring or homework help).  His commitment to showing up on a daily basis comes from his desire to improve his English grade, which is by far his worst subject in school.  Buzwe has the determination and motivation that teachers and coaches dream about in their students, and I'm so happy to share that on his most recent report card, Buzwe earned the highest grade for English he's received in years!  I'm so proud of him. Way to go Buzwe!
