(NECN) - In the past, Suffolk Construction CEO John Fish has commented that the construction business is about more than buildings, it's about communities. The future of communities is with children and their education.

Fish is the driving force behind the Boston Scholar Athletes program. He created the program because he has dyslexia and struggled reading and writing early on. As a child, Fish had confidence in his athletic abilities, but wasn't as sure of himself when it came to academics. He credits his high school for helping him learn to believe in his scholarly abilities and wanted to encourage others faced with similar struggles.

Fish also discusses building projects in the city under Boston Mayor Marty Walsh versus Tom Menino.
