Tershona Branch of Burgaw was recognized during a Wolfpack Women's basketball game for winning a Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarship from Four County EMC.

Tershona earned the scholarship based on her outstanding application and essay. She is the daughter of Terry and Sonya Branch.

Tershona was selected from numerous applicants to attend the Wolfpack Women's Basketball Camp at N.C. State University last summer on an all-expense paid scholarship from Four County EMC. She reunited with several Touchstone Energy scholarship winners from across the state at Reynolds Coliseum to receive her recognition and watch the Wolfpack Women take on Notre Dame on Sunday, March 2.

"We are proud to recognize Tershona for her outstanding achievements in the classroom and in athletics," said Gay Johnson, Director of Corporate Communications at Four County EMC. "These scholarships are an excellent way for young women to broaden their horizons, experience life on a college campus, work with collegiate coaches and develop fundamental skills that will help them excel both on and off the court."

The scholarship winners and their guests received tickets to the game and a catered lunch. At halftime, the young women were recognized by name at half court and received a certificate of achievement. North Carolina's Touchstone Energy cooperatives also presented the Wolfpack Women's basketball program with $15,000 in support of the upcoming 2014 summer basketball camp scholarships.
