Porter Hesslegrave, a Willows alum from the Class of 2010, discovered his passion for fencing while participating in an enrichment class at The Willows. Today, Porter competes internationally, fencing with an epee blade on the cadet circuit. He recently placed fifth for his age group in the FIE Junior World Cup Fencing Competition in Gothenburg, Sweden.
"I lend my success in fencing to The Willows for exposing me to a sport that I would have never tried," says Porter. "The Willows environment fostered my drive to follow through and succeed in anything I put my mind to."
Porter is currently a senior at Crossroads School.
