Nicole Moses and Michelle Moses are students who perform well both on the basketball court and in the classroom. Although they are sisters, the two attend different high schools. Nicole is a 16-year-old junior at Riverside Poly High School and plays on the girls' junior varsity basketball team. She loves playing basketball and is always striving to improve her game. Nicole works hard with her studies and maintains a 3.0 GPA while in the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) Program, a college preparatory program that exposes students to a rigorous curriculum. Nicole is preparing to go on a 4-day tour of five California college campuses with the AVID Program.

Michelle is a 14-year-old freshman at John W. North High School and plays on the girls' freshman basketball team. Like her older sister, Michelle loves basketball and continues to work on her skills on and off the court. She manages to maintain a 3.66 GPA while in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, a college preparatory program. Michelle has been selected to be a Student Ambassador for the summer of 2008 and will go on a 2-week international tour of Belgium, France, London and the Netherlands.

The Moses sisters are able to excel in school do to the support and encouragement of their mother, Jewel Moses and their grandmother, Doris Bundy. Doris was a Hall of Fame high school basketball player in her hometown of Glassboro, New Jersey. The girls also receive a tremendous amount of support from their great aunts and uncles.

Dell Roberts, organizer of the Riverside Black History Parade, also provides a great amount of support to the girls, whether it's by taking them to practices, attending games, or serving as a mentor.
