Staff Spotlight - Ben Savoy

My name is Benjamin Savoy and I am outgoing guy. I love watching sports and hanging out with friends. I'm from Encino, CA and am a sophomore at Notre Dame High School. I have a passion for tennis, which is why I am on my school’s Varsity tennis team.

Outside of school I umpire little league baseball and teach math to young kids. I love going to the beach and swimming in the ocean. I enjoy helping others and I am a very open guy. I'll be instructing tennis and other athletics at camp this summer.
