Two local students practiced alongside athletes and coaches from top-ranked college basketball programs this summer, thanks to Halifax EMC’s Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarships.
Lorelei Jean and Keshiya Evans, both from Halifax County, attended the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp at NC State University in Raleigh, led by head coach Wes Moore.
“Lorelei and Keshiya are outstanding students, athletes and community members,” 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.”
The campers joined more than 20 electric co-op scholarship winners statewide at the camp, where 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 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 Lorelei and Keshiya for earning these scholarships and representing Halifax EMC at basketball camp this summer!
