Autumn Jones, a rising 8th grader at Southwestern Randolph Middle School, expanded her knowledge of basketball at the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp June 10-13 at NC State University in Raleigh. Autumn is the daughter of Kristen Jones of Franklinville.
During the camp, Autumn stayed in a dorm and experienced life as a college student, and also developed fundamental skills that will help her excel on and off the court. NC State coaches and student-athletes worked directly with campers to improve their basketball skills and practice working as a team.
“Autumn is an outstanding student, athlete and community member,” said Kathleen Duckworth, communication and outreach specialist at REMC. “We are proud to partner with the university to help provide such a unique leadership and learning experience for local students.”
Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships are awarded to more than 50 middle-school students statewide each year. Scholarship winners are selected based on an application that includes academics, extracurricular activities and an essay.
