2019 Touchstone Energy Sports Camps

Two local students have earned all-expenses-paid Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships from EnergyUnited to attend summer basketball camps at two of the state’s largest college campuses.

2019 recipients of the Touchstone Energy Sports Camp
Scholarship: Ivey Morrison & Hayden Michalak

Ivey Morrison, a fifth-grader at East Iredell Elementary School, will represent EnergyUnited this June at the 2019 Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp at NC State University. Ivey, who is the daughter of Ashley Morrison, enjoys playing basketball, participating in gymnastics and dancing.

Hayden Michalak, a seventh-grader at Union Grove Christian School in Lexington, NC, will attend the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp in June at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Hayden, the son of Patricia and Eddie Michalak, enjoys playing basketball and soccer, and participating in youth activities at church.

“EnergyUnited is pleased to give these outstanding students the opportunity to experience life on a college campus and learn from college coaches and student-athletes,” said Maureen Moore, communications manager at EnergyUnited. “These camps teach valuable lessons that students can apply in their lives both on and off the court.”

Ivey and Hayden were selected by a panel of judges based on an application that included the students’ academic achievements, extracurricular activities, an essay and a short-answer question.


Each year, one girl and one boy are selected to attend basketball camp at two prestigious North Carolina college campuses. The all-expenses-paid scholarships, sponsored by North Carolina’s 26 Touchstone Energy cooperatives, provided funding for more than 50 middle-school students across the state. Young women can apply to attend the Wolfpack Basketball Camp at North Carolina State University, and young men can apply to the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp at the University of North Carolina.
