Through a generous private donation and the generosity of Chess4life we were also able to host a visit from Elliott Neff, the CEO of Chess4life and obtain the licensing necessary to provide the Chess4life teaching curriculum and student access.

 

Elliott Neff is from Seattle, Washington and is a National Chess Master.  He is also Phiona Mutesi’s (Queen of Katwe) coach.  He coached her in the Chess Olympiad in Azerbaijan and is now the coach of her team at Northwest University in Kirkland, Washington.
