Stephen Curry and Chad Fair
Stephen Curry was born on March 14, 1988 in Akron, Ohio. After his family moved to North Carolina, Stephen played point guard at Charlotte Christian School. College scouts noted Stephen's talent and awareness on the court. He decided to play with the Wildcats of Davidson College. During his sophomore year, he led the team to a surprise run in the NCAA championship. In addition to being voted as an All-American, Stephen also received an ESPY nomination for the Breakthrough Player of the Year award.
In the 2009 NBA Draft in June 2009 the Golden State Warriors selected Curry in the first round with the seventh overall pick. Curry made his NBA regular season debut on October 28, 2009 in the Warriors' 2009-10 season opener against the Houston Rockets. Curry started the game and finished with 14 points, seven assists and four steals. Stephen continued to shine during his rookie season, finishing second in rookie of the year voting. He continues to lead the Golden State Warriors, a young and determined team. This year, he is averaging just under 20 points per game with a .478 field goal percentage.
Chad Fair is currently in his eighth year of teaching and feels like he is still experiencing new and exciting things everyday. He graduated with a bachelorís degree in pre-seminary studies from Baptist Bible College in 2002. While at BBC Chadís passion for fine arts was cultivated by several fantastic teachers and this led to his desire to become a teacher himself. In his short time as an educator, Chad has taught a wide spectrum of classes but is currently teaching Public Speaking, Acting 1, Introduction to Film Studies, and Broadcasting for the fine arts department at Charlotte Christian School in Charlotte, N.C.
Chad has worked diligently for the past five years to build the broadcasting program for his school. The team, known as Knights Knews, works to produce a 10 minute video news magazine for the high school every week. The show consists of announcements, sports coverage, shorts, and original music productions. Recently the program was highlighted by Charlotte Magazine as one of the top reasons to go to a private school in Charlotte and has been featured several times on schooltube.com, a national outlet for high school media classes to upload and share their original work.
When not at school, Chad can be found spending time with his beautiful wife Emily and children, Sophia, Piper, and Malachi. He finds that he is a better teacher because of the support he has at home.
ďI love to teach because it is a chance to speak into studentís lives. Teaching in the fine arts offers a great deal of opportunity to develop relationships that last well beyond graduation day. I love watching students work and accomplish tasks, like performing scenes from plays or presenting speeches, which they never thought they could do. Seeing that look on their face that is indicative of that sense of accomplishment and pride is such a huge reward for me.Ē
