Harlem Globetrotter Orlando 'El Gato' Melendez inspires students


"Find what you love and do it well," said , 37, who earned his nickname, "El Gato", as a kid when cats followed him to his native Puerto Rican court. "Think, 'What am I doing now that will get me there?'" St. Anthony's was the first of several schools Melendez will visit before the Globetrotters perform at Ford Arena as part of an educational and anti-bullying initiative. (Beaumont Enterprise)
