This I Believe - Rhode Island: Mercy

Providence, RI – All of us have had people walk into our lives unexpectedly and, in ways we never anticipated, change our lives forever - the way we view the world, our most basic priorities, our sense of what really matters. Indeed, that's what happened to Cori Hughes.

Hughes has been the women's basketball coach at Salve Regina University since 2007. She has been coaching basketball since she graduated from Boston University in 1992, where she was captain of the women's basketball team. Before joining the college coaching ranks about ten years ago, Hughes was a high school coach and English teacher in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
