“I have been with the summer program since I was six years old. I went through the program every summer, and was lucky enough to win the scholarship from 2005-2006. The Todd Martin program instilled a love of tennis for me, this love ended up taking me through high school and eventually onto a Division II tennis team. In my first year on the team I had an undefeated record at six singles, and won First Team All-Conference in doubles. I transferred to Michigan State and joined the club tennis team. I was the president for two years. The Todd Martin program has been the core of almost every summer of my life. It has given me some of my closest friends, and it has helped me to become a much better leader.” - Renee Hoekstra, Staff
“Tutoring has been a joy and everything is going amazing! I feel like we are both growing from each other; not only am I teaching the participant school subjects, but the participant is also teaching me different ways of communicating and how to attack problems.” - Volunteer Tutor
