WASHINGTON, D.C. — Southeastern University men’s basketball coach R-Jay Barsh was part of a group that spoke at the White House on Wednesday.
Barsh, who begins his sixth season as head coach, was part of a group of 80 people that influence millennials and are leaders in their fields that was invited to speak with White House officials at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
“You work hard for your community, and sometimes, God blesses you with a platform that you can’t explain, but you know you should steward,” said Barsh of the opportunity. “I feel like today was a big step forward in addressing issues in our nation involving young people.”
The group addressed various issues in each of their communities and areas of experience. For Barsh, he’s looking to build relationships between young African-American males and law enforcement.
“I feel this is an area I’m being called to, since I coach young males on a daily basis,” said Barsh.
