A Seattle Mariners star dropped by Chief Sealth International High School, reports assistant principal Michael Reisinger:
Nelson Cruz stopped by Chief Sealth International High School on Thursday to speak with students about the importance of their education. A small group of students were able to meet with Cruz for about an hour and ask questions about his early days through his professional career. Cruz stressed to them the value of completing high school and working hard to achieve their goals. He also paused to take selfies and sign autographs for several students. The Chief Sealth family of staff and students thank Cruz for his visit, wish him well in the ongoing season, and welcome him back anytime.
Cruz, who joined the Mariners last year, is the son of educators.
