Wake Electric has awarded Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarships that will send three local middle school students to basketball camps this month at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and N.C. State University in Raleigh.

Both Cameron Bynum of Raleigh and student at Forest Pines Drive Elementary and Brandon Temple, Jr. of Raleigh and student at Westlake Middle have received scholarships for the Roy Williams Basketball Camp at UNC.  Madisyn Jordan of Morrisville and student at LeRoy Martin Gifted and Talented School Magnet Middle School was selected for a scholarship to attend the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp at N.C. State.

At the camps, students stay overnight in campus dorms, learn fundamental basketball and life skills, and receive individual and group instruction from Division 1 coaches. Roy Williams, coach of the Carolina Tar Heel men’s basketball team, and Wes Moore, coach of the Wolfpack women’s basketball team, will direct the camps with the help of staff and current and former players.

Wake Electric is one of 26 Touchstone Energy cooperatives in North Carolina that collectively award more than 50 sports camp scholarships to students statewide each year.
