Jones-Onslow has awarded Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarships to three local middle school students to attend basketball camps this month at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and NC State University in Raleigh.
Fisher Taylor (Topsail Middle School) is the scholarship recipient of the Roy Williams Basketball Camp at UNC, while Sidney Ferguson (Hunters Creek Middle School) and Mia McCarroll (Jacksonville Commons Middle School) will both attend the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp at NC State.
Students stay overnight in campus dorms, learn fundamental basketball and life skills, and receive individual and group instruction from Division 1 coaches. Hubert Davis, coach of the Carolina Tar Heels men’s basketball team, and Wes Moore, coach of the Wolfpack women’s basketball team, direct the camps with the help of staff and current and former players.
JOEMC is one of 26 Touchstone Energy cooperatives in North Carolina that collectively award more than 50 sports camp scholarships to students statewide each year.
