Richmond County Middle Schooler Trains at Top-Ranked Basketball Program - Carolina Country

Kerick Hairston Jr

This summer, Kerick Hairston Jr., a seventh grader at Rockingham Middle, participated in the Carolina Basketball School, led by head coach Hubert Davis at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

Sponsored by Pee Dee Electric’s Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarships, Kerick joined other campers as they stayed overnight in dorms and experienced life as a college student. At camp, coaches and student-athletes worked directly with campers to develop basketball fundamentals and practice skills such as teamwork to help them excel on and off the court.

Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarships are available each year as part of Pee Dee Electric’s commitment to supporting youth and education in our community. Congratulations to Kerick for earning this year’s scholarship and representing Pee Dee Electric at basketball camp this summer!
