Thanks to the co-op’s Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarship program, Union Power Cooperative is proud to congratulate two terrific kids selected to attend a week long summer basketball camp at two of the state’s largest universities.
Caydance Garmon, of Monroe Middle School, will attend N.C. State University Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp from June 11th – 14th. Caydance is the daughter of Crystal Mungo.
Marcus Montgomery, of Weddington Middle School, will attend the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp from June 17-21st at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Marcus is the son Ferlando & Patricia Montgomery.
While Touchstone Energy Camps give students an opportunity to practice and improve on their basketball skills, these students have an opportunity to work closely with the staff and players while developing fundamental skills in leadership and teamwork. Leading the N.C. State Wolfpack Women’s camp is head coach Wes Moore, the 2014 ESPNW Atlantic Coast Conference Coach of the Year, his coaching team, 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.
Union Power Cooperative is proud to offer local students an opportunity to learn from college coaches and student-athletes while experiencing life on a college campus. Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to all who applied!
