About Us

Tejas Sukesh

Executive Director

Tejas Sukesh is a junior at Trinity Valley School and has played chess for over a decade. He is the president of TVS Chess Club and Team which has ranked consistently top in the state. Tejas finds chess to be common ground among all people as anyone despite their age or background can play. His mission with the organization is to bring the Fort Worth community together through the game of chess. Despite being a high schooler, he continues to balance chess with his academics. Tejas hopes to have the chess club outlast himself and stay in Fort Worth for years to come.
