Touchstone Energy Sports Camps Scholarships

Wake Electric is providing all-expenses paid scholarships for one deserving young woman to attend the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp at NC State in Raleigh and one young man to attend the Roy Williams
Basketball Camp at UNC in Chapel Hill this summer.

The Roy Williams Basketball Camp will be held June 22-26, 2019 and the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp will be held June 9-12. Coaches at both camps will work closely with each camper to develop fundamental skills that will help the young athletes excel both on and off the court.

Rising sixth through rising eighth graders are eligible to apply and Wake Electric will be accepting applications January 2, 2019. The deadline to apply was March 31, 2019. Applicants will be judged on their academics, extra-curricular activities and accompanying essay.

The Touchstone Energy Sports Camp program provides a unique educational and athletic opportunity for outstanding students across our state and is yet another way North Carolina’s Touchstone Energy cooperatives are demonstrating its commitment to North Carolina Communities.

Wake Awards 2019 Sports Camp Scholarships

Wake Electric has awarded Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarships that will send two 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. 

Jaevian Alston of Louisburg and student at Heritage Middle School received the scholarship for the Roy Williams Basketball Camp at UNC.  Asia Burton of Franklinton and student at Long Mill Elementary 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.
