About the Catholic Black History Month Cincinnati Celebration Honorees
This year’s Honorees are Mr. Anthony Pack, Ms. Rachel Fair and Ms. Denise Carpenter. All are members of the Cincinnati Tennis Hall of Fame.
Mr. Pack and Ms. Fair founded the Inner City Tennis Project (ICPT) in 1986. Ms. Fair later joined them. The ICPT gives inner-city children the opportunity to learn and play tennis for free and year-round. The mission of the Inner City Tennis Project is “To foster the development of citizenship, scholarship and fair play in children age five to age eighteen through the use of tennis training, academic assistance and nurturing social environment.”
Mr. Pack, Ms. Fair, and Ms. Carpenter not only teach children how to play tennis but freely give of their time and talent to give each child a sense of personal and community responsibility. Their gift of time has truly changed the lives of many Inner City Children by giving the children guidance during their youth and the ability to enjoy tennis throughout their lives.
The Holy Name Catholic Church community is very proud to recognize the Honorees for making a difference in the lives of Inner-City Children.
Please join in thanking the Honorees at this celebration of Catholic Black History Month on November 16 at Holy Name Catholic Church.
