In his second-grade art class, young entrepreneur Max added a basketball hoop onto a mug so he could toss marshmallows into hot cocoa. With the help of his parents, Ronald Ash ’91 and Jennifer Brenner Ash ’91, Max turned that idea into a business that helps kids like him who have dyslexia. They’ve sold more than 120,000 mugs throughout the world with a multi-sport product line that includes basketball, baseball, football, hockey and soccer. Oversized mugs are high-quality stoneware, dishwasher and microwave safe. $25.
