On June 28, Laura Loveless and Katie Inclan traveled to Greenwood to talk at Camp Powerpuffers. Camp Powerpuffers is a camp conducted by Piedmont Technical College that focuses on helping children learn to control their asthma. The camp and the athletes' presentation was designed to encourage the children to not let their asthma stand in the way of their dreams. Laura and Katie shared their personal experiences with asthma and ways in which they are able to manage it and be college athletes.
Finishing up the month of July, the Community Relations Office conducted a presentation for some incoming freshman student-athletes. The presentation focused on the different components of the Be a T.I.G.E.R! program and the many ways that these student-athletes could get involved with service opportunities. Over 50 members joined the Solid Orange Squad at this meeting. The Solid Orange Squad is an elite student-athlete service organization that focuses on giving back to the surrounding community.
School is quickly approaching and student-athletes are returning to campus to begin training for their upcoming seasons. The Community Relations Office is also hard at work preparing for the upcoming school year. It will be a busy and exciting year to give back to the community.
