PCA Honors Deloitte's Spruell & Chicago Sky

Climbing up the ladder of success whether in athletics or career, is not a solo mission and along the way many people that have found success in their respective journey have received the help of coaches that have impacted their lives positively, for more than a season. On Wednesday (11/11), Positive Coaching Alliance’s Chicago chapter honored Deloitte Vice Chairman of the Central Region, and Chicago Managing Principal Byron Spruell with their Triple-Impact Professional Award. In accepting his award, Mr. Spruell made mention of his coach at Notre Dame Lou Holtz, whose support and encouraging words he still refers to now.

“Byron is an extraordinary business and civic leader, and a wonderful example to the high school students.”  -Tai Duncan, Executive Director for PCA-Chicago
