Coach Carlisle of the Dallas Mavericks Visits Greenhill 12/16/2011 Greenhill welcomed Rick Carlisle, Head Coach of the Dallas Mavericks, for an inspirational musical assembly for our Middle School on Friday, December 16, 2011.
Exuding Greenhill values of well-roundedness and diversity of interest, Coach Carlisle is an athlete with a passion for music. He is a self-taught musician who discovered a love for piano while also playing basketball at University of Virginia.
In a part-musical performance, part-inspirational talk, he encouraged Middle Schoolers to pursue their passions to the utmost, to work hard for things they care about, to channel nervous feelings into positive outcomes, and to not let anyone tell them they can’t do something they love. Along with musician Joseph Vincelli on the saxophone and flute, Coach Carlisle played jazzy holiday favorites from the Peanuts’ collection such as “Christmas Time is Here” and “Linus and Lucy.”

Thank you to Mr. Carlisle and Mr. Vincelli for visiting Greenhill! And GO MAVS!
