Neeya said, “I had an amazing experience at the NC State Wolfpack Women’s basketball camp! The second I walked in the stadium I immediately felt the school spirit. The coaches were so nice and improved my play. I got better at skills like defending. I definitely grew as a player! Staying in the dorms was really fun! I got to meet new people and hang out with them during our breaks! My favorite part was playing basketball 24/7!”

Neeya and Emmanuel are among 50 middle school students statewide that were awarded scholarships this year, and were selected based on an application process that included academics, extracurricular activities, and an essay.
