      2013 Kravis Prize recipient and speed-skating Olympic gold medalist Johann Koss founded Right To Play in 2000, after meeting children in Africa who had been traumatized by civil war. Uprooted and with little to call their own, he watched them improvise games of soccer, using rolled up shirts, garbage bags, even banana leaves, as balls. “They wanted one thing: the opportunity to play,” he says. Their determination was not unlike his as a boy. At age 7, he asked for speed skates. By the time he was 11, he was walking a mile each way to the neighborhood stadium, alone, to practice. With his grandmother’s encouragement, he says he believed in himself––and persisted, rising from “horrible” skater to four-time gold champion. Koss wants children worldwide to have the same opportunities, and is reaching more than 1 million of them weekly, through Right To Play’s educational games and curriculum. Who better than CMC’s own Kyle Weiss ‘15 to chat with the Kravis Prize honoree during his CMC visit? Weiss, an athlete/soccer enthusiast, founded FUNDaFIELD at age 13––motivated, like Koss, to help disadvantaged children. FUNDaFIELD raises money to buld soccer fields in developing countries.

                  Having built a solid reputation across the university while dean of Duke Law, Pamela Gann’s transition to president of Claremont McKenna College was not all that dissimilar. “What a president wants to do is build on the founders, and the good and effective work that has gone before them,“ she has said. “What I was most interested in doing was taking the mission of the College––to educate leaders for business and the professions and public affairs, in particular––and make sure we were doing that on a national and international basis.” In this tribute video, students, faculty, and Trustees share the legacy and good work that President Gann now leaves to her successor to build on.
