Wake Awards 2017 sports camp scholarships

Madisyn G. Jordan of Leroy Martin GT Middle School in Raleigh, N.C. will attend the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp at N.C. State University, and Max Blackmon of Riverwood Elementary School in Clayton, N.C. will attend the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, all are on full scholarships from Wake Electric.  Madisyn is the daughter of Adrian and Shaneice Jordan, Max is the son of Brent Blackmon.

“Wake Electric is pleased to give these outstanding students the opportunity to experience life on a college campus and learn from NCAA coaches and student-athletes,” said Jim Mangum, general manager and CEO at Wake Electric. “These camps teach valuable lessons that students can apply in their lives both on and off the court.”

Madisyn and Max were selected by a panel of judges based on an application that included academic achievements, extracurricular activities, an essay and a short-answer question.

During the overnight camps, students will stay in dorms on campus and soak up lessons on the hardwood from the collegiate coaching staffs and student-athletes.  Coaches at both overnight camps will work closely with each camper to develop fundamental basketball skills and practice playing hard while working cooperatively.

Leading the N.C. State women’s camp is head coach Wes Moore, his coaching staff, and current and former N.C. State women’s basketball players.  The Carolina camp is led by two-time NCAA national championship coach Roy Williams, his staff, and current and past Tar Heel basketball players.

The Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp will be held June 11-14 in Raleigh, and the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp was held June 17-21 in Chapel Hill.

The all-expense paid scholarships, sponsored by North Carolina’s 26 Touchstone Energy cooperatives, provide funding for more than 50 middle-school students from across North Carolina to attend basketball camp.  This is the 14th year the cooperatives have awarded young women scholarships to attend an N.C. State women’s basketball camp and the 11th year the co-ops have sent young men to the Roy Williams camp.

North Carolina’s Touchstone Energy cooperatives provide reliable, safe and affordable energy and related services to more than 950,000 households and businesses in the state.  The Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarship program is part of the electric cooperatives’ ongoing commitment to local communities in North Carolina.
