“This summer will mark the eleventh year the co-ops have awarded deserving young men and women the chance to attend basketball camp at NC colleges,” said Judy Gore, VP of Customer Service. “These scholarships are an excellent way for young people to broaden their horizons, experience life on a college campus, work with collegiate coaches and develop fundamental skills that will help them excel both on and off the court.”
The scholarship winners and their guests received tickets to the game and a catered lunch from the cooperative. At halftime, the young women were recognized by name at half court and received a certificate of achievement. The state’s Touchstone Energy cooperatives also presented the Kellie Harper Women’s Basketball Academy with a check for $14,600 in support of the upcoming 2012 summer basketball camp scholarships.
