NBA Star Anthony Bennett visits Tall Pines!

Anthony Bennett made history by becoming the first Canadian to be drafted number one by the NBA in the 2013 draft.

Today, the TPS community welcomed Mr. Bennett, a Brampton local, who currently plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The students were excited to greet him, ask him questions, and to have an autograph and picture session.

Mr. Bennett spoke of the importance of school and being diligent and preserving through every challenge.

"To become successful at anything requires a lot of hard work," he said. "My mom wouldn't let me play video games until I finished my homework."

Wise advice, Mr. Bennett, wise advice.
