Five students from the Clark County Day Treatment Center are participating in the Susan Polger World Open Chess Tournament beginning today in Chicago. Not bad for a group of students who learned to play the game last fall. When Day Treatment Center Principal Greg Hollon introduced chess into the school shortly after being hired in 2010, he had no idea how quickly his students would progress with the game in a such short time. Hollon, an avid chess player himself, said he brought chess into the classrooms at the center because he felt like the skills needed to succeed in chess were the skills his students needed to succeed in life.
