Meet the members of SKORE, all who have a passion for sports and introducing the many benefits of playing sports to underprivileged children.
Board of Directors
Co-Founder, President of SKORE
Bronson, a senior at Dartmouth College, and has accepted a consulting position at Bain & Company in San Francisco. He has been an avid athlete and played varsity lacrosse at Simsbury High School. Bronson believes that sports are not only great for physical fitness, but also promote emotional and mental fitness, as kids learn to work cooperatively for common goals. Skills and lessons learned on the field often serve students well later in life. His hope is that through SKORE, more kids will have the opportunity to experience the benefits that sports can offer.
Outside of SKORE, Bronson enjoys academic excellence and is on the Dean’s list at Dartmouth. He currently spends his free time on the Dartmouth Formula Racing team and skiing the beautiful mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont. He is a member of the Woodsman club and travels throughout New England competing with his team. He loves surfing, his dogs Lola and Otis, and traveling with his family.
Jack, a senior at Notre Dame University, serves on the Board of Directors. Jack’s lifelong involvement in sports has impressed upon him the opportunities that sports provide. He believes that by offering kids the chance to play, SKORE can ultimately instill the value of being part of a team. By providing opportunities for kids to play sports, he hopes that SKORE will help kids the see the benefits of athletic and academic focus and commitment, and will help them make positive choices as they navigate their teen years.
He plays the guitar, piano and drums. Besides playing sports, he loves family vacations in Maine too.
Don, an electromechanical engineer and avid sports fan, serves on the Board of Directors. He was a baseball player in his youth and believes that sports are a fundamental part of a child’s life. He is excited to see SKORE bring the value of sports to kid’s lives. He loves attending his children’s sporting events and is usually the fan cheering the loudest!
Dr. Wanda Kirejczyk is a physician at the Hospital of Central Connecticut and the Vein Centers of Connecticut. She is proud to be a part of SKORE and feels that the organization not only serves to provide underprivileged kids with sports equipment but will help the environment, as gently used equipment will find new homes, rather than end up in a landfill. She loves the beach and cooking.
Board of Directors
Lilliana is currently a member of the Class of 2025 at George Washington School of Medicine. Her love of medicine and desire to heal has made her a valuable member of SKORE. She studied Kinesiology, the study of movement, as an undergraduate at the College of William and Mary. She sees SKORE as a great opportunity to help kids get moving! She rowed crew and was a hurdler for her high school track team. She enjoys skiing, traveling and spending time with her family.
Kylee is currently a sophomore at Amity Regional High School in Woodbridge, CT where she is an honor student. She loves sports and participated on the following teams as an Amity freshman: Freshman Volleyball, Freshman and JV Basketball, and Varsity Softball. This past year she decided to focus on softball both in school and on a National travel team. Softball is her passion and she hopes to play collegiate ball after graduation. When she is not playing, Kylee loves to draw, paint, fish and spend time with family, friends and her dog Pedey.
When Kylee heard about SKORE and their mission statement she just knew she had to be involved. Kylee believes that sports change lives. Sports help build self-esteem, help develop positive social skills, teach team building and time management while also learning to take directions and feedback from others. Kylee believes all kids should have the opportunity to play even if there is a concern of cost. Recycling equipment is a win for kids and for our environment.
Diego is a senior at the University of Pennsylvania, studying business. After graduation in 2023, Diego will be joining McKinsey & Company as a consultant. Since his dad, Tato Noriega, was a professional soccer player in Mexico, Diego understands the great benefits and opportunities that can come from sports. Because of this, he is proud to be a part of SKORE to help young kids find their love for sports.
