Canaan Smith thanks Mathnasium!

Nov 14, 2018 | South Pasadena

Student-athletes around South Pasadena understand the struggle and challenge that comes with trying to balance the focus on good grades with the pursuit of a becoming a great athlete.  Both take time and commitment - a lot of it, in fact. Canaan Smith went through this same struggle when he played football and baseball for his high school teams in Texas.  He wanted to play in the big leagues, but his math and science grades were holding him back.


Luckily, Canaan’s father (a firefighter, and his son's biggest fan) heard about Mathnasium.  He brought his son to their local Mathnasium, and things started turning up from there.  The center was able to work around his rigorous and hectic schedule of weight training, school and practices. In due time, with his confidence up along with his grades, real opportunities began to appear for Canaan.
