There's No Stopping Naamah (Brown) !

Whether it's fighting her way back from knee surgery ,or enduring the often grueling as well as frustrating college application process,she's willing to put in the work to overcome all obstacles in her path.

As a center on the very successful Lady Panther hoop squad,Naamah helped lead Fenway to a 17-6 record that included huge playoff wins in the annual MIAA Tournament. A disappointing loss to Manchester -Essex ended Naamah's high school hoop career,one that had it's share of ups and downs.

"I feel like my injury of tearing my ACL messed me up the most in getting recruited for college ball,but everything happens for a reason", she told "I enjoyed my senior season",Miss Brown added.

After working fulltime all summer,Naamah will begin to classes at Quincy College where she hopes to transfer after a year. Also helping to pay her tuition will be the $1,000 she recieved from the Boston Scholar Athlete Program,which honored her with their "Most Academically Improved" award. is proud to help share just a small part of this wonderful individual's high school experience. She is a good example of what hardwork and dedication can achieve. On the court, in the classroom,and in the workforce, Naamah Brown has proven to be someone who's not afraid to take on life's challenges. Congratulations and best of luck Naamah!
