John Wall, the Washington Wizard’s five-time NBA all-star, hired an Island School alumnus as his personal chef. Last month, the Washington Post published an article about Wall’s journey to drop weight and refine his taste after a knee surgery this winter. Horatio Smith, a Fall 2002 alumnus, is credited and quoted throughout the article about Wall’s transformation. Last summer, Wall vacationed at a luxury villa in the Bahamas where Horatio was the personal chef. Enjoying Horatio’s suggestions and culinary style, Wall hired him to be his personal chef back in Washington!
