Students may apply for basketball camp scholarships
North Carolina's Touchstone Energy cooperatives are providing all-expense paid scholarships for 52 young men and women from across the state to attend basketball camps this summer.
Twenty-six girls will be selected to attend the Kellie Harper Wolfpack Basketball Academy at N.C. State in Raleigh, and 26 young men will attend the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp at UNC in Chapel Hill. Each camper will work directly with championship-winning collegiate coaches to develop fundamental skills that will help the young athletes excel both on and off the court. The camps will be held in June and July on the college campuses.
Rising sixth through eighth graders are eligible to apply, and the cooperatives will accept applications Jan. 2 through March 30. Students can download an application at www.ncelectriccooperatives.com once the application period opens. Applicants will be judged on their academics, extra-curricular activities and their accompanying essay.
