Micah Richardson from Warren County Middle School participated in the Carolina Basketball School, led by head coach Hubert Davis, at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

“Micah is an outstanding student, athlete, and community member,” said Julia Allsbrook, manager of marketing and economic development at Halifax EMC. “We are proud to partner with a prestigious North Carolina university to help provide such a unique leadership and learning experience for our local students and future leaders.”

Micah joined more than 25 electric co-op scholarship winners statewide at the camp, where they stayed overnight in dorms and experienced life as a college student. Coaches and student-athletes worked directly with campers to develop basketball fundamentals and practice skills such as teamwork that will help them excel on and off the court.

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