Dear Parents:

Rutherford Electric Membership Corporation is pleased to offer two Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarships to basketball camps on college campuses in 2014 for students entering sixth, seventh and eighth grades.  Of course, this only applies to our fifth graders here at Tryon Elementary School who will be entering the sixth grade next year.  However, perhaps you have an older child who will be entering the seventh or eighth grade as of next year. 

Young womenCan apply for a scholarship to attend the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp on June 23-26 at N.C. State University in Raleigh.


Young men:  can apply for a scholarship to attend the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp June 21-25 at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.


Rutherford Electric Membership Corporation will award scholarships to one boy and one girl. All expenses for the overnight camps will be paid by Rutherford Electric Membership, and campers are responsible for their own transportation to and from the camp. The deadline for students to apply to either camp is March 31, 2014.

Here at Tryon Elementary School, we are encouraging students to take advantage of this opportunity by not only gaining the fundamental skills in basketball, but also learning how to set goals, create new friendships, and develop character skills that will benefit each participate on and off the court.
