Sanford, N.C., March 16, 2015 – The deadline is quickly approaching for middle-school students to apply for an all-expense paid scholarship from Central Electric to attend summer basketball camp at two of the state’s largest universities.
Central Electric is awarding two Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships to local students this year. One young man will be selected to attend the Roy Williams Basketball Camp June 20-24 at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, and one young lady will win a scholarship to attend the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp June 14-17 at N.C. State University in Raleigh. Applications must be received or postmarked by March 31.
At camp, students will work directly with the players and coaches to learn basketball skills and about leadership and teamwork. To be eligible to apply, students must be in the sixth, seventh or eighth grade during the 2015-2016 school year. Applicants must have permission from a parent or guardian to attend the overnight camp and must provide their own transportation to and from the camp if selected to attend.
Applications and more information on the scholarships can be found by visiting CEMCPower.com or by contacting Janet Jackson at (919) 708-1638 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants will be judged on academics, extra-curricular activities and an essay.
The Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships provide a one-of-a-kind educational and athletic opportunity to our state’s youth and reflect Touchstone Energy’s core values of accountability, integrity, innovation and commitment to community. North Carolina’s Touchstone Energy cooperatives will award more than 50 sports camp scholarships to students statewide this year.
