“Four  County EMC  is pleased to give these outstanding students the opportunity to experience life on a college campus and the chance to learn from winning collegiate coaches and student athletes,” said Gay Johnson, Director of Corporate Communications.  “These camps teach valuable lessons that students can apply in their lives both on and off the court.”

This is the ninth year that Touchstone Energy has awarded young women scholarships to attend an N.C. State women’s basketball camp and the seventh year that the cooperatives have sent young men to the Roy Williams camp.

The staff of the Kellie Harper Basketball Academy includes championship-winning head coach Kellie Harper, who joined the Wolfpack Women three years ago from Western Carolina University, and current N.C. State women’s basketball players. The Roy Williams camp is led by two-time NCAA national championship coach Roy Williams and current and past Tar Heel basketball players. Staff at both camps will work closely with each camper to develop fundamental basketball skills and motivate students to set and achieve goals. 

          The Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarship program is part of the electric cooperatives’ ongoing commitment to local communities in North Carolina.

Locally, Four County EMC serves 32,500 members throughout Bladen, Duplin, Pender, Sampson, Columbus and Onslow counties.
