Last year the Boston Celtics [1] were recognized at the White House for winning the NBA championship. This summer two of the Cs returned to Washington D.C., this time to recognize a group of students from the Harbor Middle School in Dorchester for their community service.

On Monday Celtics forwards Brian Scalabrine [2] and Bill Walker [3] toured the nation’s Capitol with approximately 15 students as part of the tenth annual ASSISTS Community Service Contest. Contest creators Southwest Airlines and the Boston Celtics flew the students for a field trip which also included a tour of other monuments and attractions in the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area.

Scalabrine and Stephon Marbury [4] teamed up with students from the Harbor Middle School in April to paint a mural for the 5th annual Southwest Airlines ASSISTS Clean-Up Day. The ASSISTS Community Service Contest was open to all eighth-grade students in the Boston Public Middle Schools.
