Staff Spotlight - Ned Shashoua

Ned Shashoua returns to North Star for summer number nine. A native of Boca Raton, FL, he's graduating from Pine Crest High School. There he's on the tennis team and in his spare time he likes playing  guitar and hanging out at the beach. He'll give up the warm Florida temps in the fall when he heads off to Northwestern University in Evanston, IL.

At camp you're likely to find Ned instructing tennis, disc golf and waterskiing. We're excited to have Ned back!
