Chess

WRNI – Adults tend to think that life lessons must be learned through decades' worth of experience, complex study, rigorous analysis, and, perhaps, therapy. But the truth is, children sometimes are able to reach astonishingly profound insights about life simply by doing what children are supposed to do, playing games with one another. And that's certainly the case with 13-year-old Raghu Nimmagadda.

Raghu Nimmagadda is a 7th grader at the Wheeler School in Providence. As a 5th grader in 2009, Raghu led the Highlander Charter School to the Middle School State Chess Championship in 2009. Raghu also loves reading, role-playing games and skiing.
