On Saturday, August 24, 
St. Thomas of Canterbury eighth grader Joseph Debrah was invited to throw the first pitch for the Chicago White Sox. He was honored for his hard work, dedication and persistence in the RBI program sponsored by the Chicago Cubs and the Union League Boys and Girls Club. Sharon Robinson invited Joseph to be her guest for the game. Joseph met the governor, Patrick Quinn, as well as many baseball legends, and the governor was so impressed by our student that he gave him his phone number!

Joseph also gave a speech about the RBI program to the Union League Club downtown on August 1.
