BOSTON (July 2, 2012) – Boston Celtics 2012 draft picks, forwards Jared Sullinger and Kris Joseph along with center Fab Melo joined Boston Celtics Co-owner and Managing Partner, Wyc Grousbeck, Boston Celtics Co-owner, Managing Partner and Shamrock Foundation President, Stephen Pagliuca, and Boston Celtics President of Basketball Operations, Danny Ainge to celebrate the unveiling of a new Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation (BCSF) renovated library and multipurpose room. The event happened at the Jackson Mann Educational Complex in Allston, MA with twenty-two students from the Jackson Mann k-8 School/Community Center and the Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
The renovated shared library space of the Jackson Mann K-8 School/Community Center and the Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing was donated by the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation. The Foundation transformed a cluttered library space into a computer lab, gaming room, auxiliary classroom and quiet reading area to be utilized by over 1,000 Boston youth. The walls have been wrapped in Celtics graphics and other images designed to inspire and motivate the students.
“I am proud the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation is able to provide an important necessity for the youth of our local community,” Boston Celtics Co-owner, Managing Partner and Shamrock Foundation President Stephen Pagliuca said. “The newly refurbished library and multipurpose room will make a difference in the children’s lives and go a long way in furthering their education.”
Prior to the library unveiling, the Boston Celtics held an introductory press conference with the 2012 draft picks for the media in attendance. This marks the second consecutive season that the Celtics have held an introductory press conference for their draft picks in conjunction with a community event.
