Dozens of youths and their parents turned out for the “Get in the Game” leadership chess training workshop, which was held this past Saturday (March 4) in Conyers.

Orrin “Checkmate” Hudson, founder of the Be Someone mentoring organization, presented the workshop, which drew a standing-room only crowd at the Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham hotel.

Hudson, a chess champion who has gained national recognition for using chess to mentor students across the country, said the event marked his first in Rockdale. He credited Rockdale County Chairman Oz Nesbitt with helping to make the event a success.
