Kelvin Green, longtime PAL member and participant, was honored by the Perkiomen School on Friday, June 8, 2012. Kelvin was introduced into the Perkiomen School Hall of Athletic Honor for his outstanding production during his tenure there, from 1998-2002.
Kelvin is on the all-time list of leading scorers in Perkiomen School history, as well as the tri-state area. Kelvin scored more than 2,000 points during his career and played a big role alongside Sean Singletary in winning the championship for Perkiomen School.
Kelvin went on to play at Coppin State University in addition to the Reading Railers, a local professional affiliation. Kelvin is described as a consummate team player that has superior athleticism and a warm, inviting smile.
Kelvin is presently working with autistic children at the Green Tree School in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. He is looked upon by the youngsters as a role model, mentor and positive influence in their lives.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Kelvin since the age of 10, when he first walked into the West Oak Lane PAL Center. All through the years, he has displayed the desire to work hard, learn and grow as he studied, both on and off the court, and to be the best that he could be. Kelvin’s engaging, positive attitude has inspired me to continue doing the work that I do. Vince Lombard once said, “The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.” Kelvin has definitely committed himself to excellence, and I am proud of him for who he is today.
