Alexandra was a guest of honor at the Title I District Chess Championship in Miami yesterday. On the photo you see her with Program Director Elizabeth Tejada and Superintendent of schools Alberto Carvalho (who oversees the 4th largest school district in the USA). The Program and tournament (844 kids playing) is a great success and it’s nice to see such great support for chess in schools. Read Alexandra’s blog post and see the official photos of this event.
