Hardin wins Challenge

Brady Hardin, an assistant girls basketball and soccer coach at Poteau, was awarded a prize from the Oklahoma Coaches Mentoring Challenge.

The Challenge is a coach-led, statewide call for more Oklahomans to become youth mentors locally. Hardin won a team-autographed OKC Energy FC soccer ball, a drawing item from the fifth and final Oklahoma Coaches Mentoring Challenge.

Launched in 2014, this coach-led, statewide campaign calls for Oklahomans to become youth mentors locally. As a natural and group mentor, Hardin sees the academic, social, emotional and economic results of mentoring.

In towns around the state, Oklahoma coaches see youths who can benefit from a mentor. In 2017-18, 800 coaches supported this call for more mentors. Results for the 2018-19 challenge will be released soon.

The Oklahoma Coaches Mentoring Challenge is sponsored by the Boren Mentoring Initiative, a program of the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence. The Boren Mentoring Initiative offers free consulting to begin or strengthen mentoring programs. Mentoring is workforce and quality of life development.
