Two local students have been selected to represent Jones-Onslow EMC at basketball camps this summer.
Tymir Brown, from Northwoods Park Middle School, will attend the Roy Wil-liams Basketball Camp this month at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Shelby Parker, from Topsail Middle School will attend the NC State Wolfpack Academy in Raleigh.
Students currently enrolled in the 6th, 7th, or 8th grades were eligible to participate in the contest. Recipients were selected as a result of their excellent applications and essays on why they wanted to attend the basketball camp.
JOEMC, along with the other electric cooperatives in the state, will send more than 50 middle school students to camp on full scholarships this year.
