BURGAW — Four County EMC sponsored middle-school students to attend the Touchstone Energy Sports Basketball Camps on college campuses this summer.
Madalyn White of Currie and Maegan Burney of Elizabethtown won a full scholarship to attend the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp June 11-14 at N.C. State University in Raleigh. Madalyn is the daughter of Michelle and Freddy White III. Maegan is the daughter of Jay and Tina Burney.
Kendall Cave of Wallace received a full scholarship to attend the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp June 18-22 at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Kendall is the son of Greg and Rhonda Cave.
During the camps, scholarship winners stayed in dorms like college students and practiced together like a collegiate team. Campers worked directly with coaches and players to practice teamwork and leadership, along with basketball skills like handling and shooting.
“Basketball camp scholarships provide students an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from acclaimed NCAA coaches and develop fundamental skills that will serve them on and off the court,” said Gay Johnson, director of corporate communications at Four County EMC. “Madalyn, Maegan and Kendall excelled this summer, and we are proud to carry on the tradition of providing scholarships to outstanding students like them.”
Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships are available to middle-school students every year and are part of Four County EMC’s commitment to community. Scholarship winners were selected based on an application that included academics, extracurricular activities and an essay.
Students interested in next year’s camp can apply beginning Jan. 2 through March 31, 2018.
