Calling all basketball fans! North Carolina's Touchstone Energy Cooperatives are accepting applications from middle-school students for all-expense paid scholarships to summer basketball camps at the University of North Carolina and N.C. State University.
Young men can apply to attend the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp in Chapel Hill, and young women can vie for a spot at the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp in Raleigh. More than 50 scholarships will awarded to students statewide.

Applicants will be judged on their academics, extra-curricular activities and an essay that must accompany the application.
Each Touchstone Energy cooperative in the state awards two scholarships to students in their local area, one to a young man and one to a young woman, each year. The scholarships send 26 young women to the N.C. State University Women's Basketball Camp in Raleigh and 26 young men to the Roy Williams Basketball Camp at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Both camps are held in the summer, and campers will work closely with the college coaches and camp staff to develop fundamental skills, helping the young athletes perform and excel both on and off the court. Campers will stay in dorms overnight during the camp sessions and must provide their own transportation to and from camp.
The Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarship program provides a unique educational and athletic opportunity for our state’s youth and demonstrates Touchstone Energy’s core values of accountability, integrity, innovation and particularly, commitment to community.

WELCOME TO BONLEE SCHOOL!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit the Bonlee School website. We hope you will find our website to be user-friendly, and after your visit, you will have a good idea of all the good things we have to offer here at Bonlee. Our students are embraced by a community of teachers, support staff, administrators, and parents, who ensure our school is a place where children feel safe, are, loved, are leaders, and enjoy learning. We continue to strive toward excellence everyday as we LEARN. LEAD. LIVE.
At Bonlee School, we are a LEADER IN ME school. As a Leader in Me school, we focus on the “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen Covey. The students are encouraged to use the habits on a daily basis in an effort to instill strong leadership and organizational skills. We are building leaders one student at a time. It is exciting to watch our students as their confidence grows each and everyday.
We also have a strong teaching staff and support personnel. We are very fortunate to have an incredible group of teachers who work collaboratively to ensure we meet the needs of all our students. All of our support personnel care deeply for the health and well being of our students. Together they are a team of caring individuals who strive for our students to be good students and leaders.
Academic achievement is also met with our partnerships with parents and our Bonlee School community. Volunteers are also an integral part of our educational program. Our PTA sponsors many wonderful events, such as students appreciation, teacher appreciation, Red Ribbon week, Anti-Bullying, and Drug Awareness, just to name a few. In addition, they provide teachers with PTA funds for materials spent which enhance our instructional programs. Community involvement is what makes a good school great. It is that support which enables Bonlee School to provide such a positive educational experience that allows each student to reach their full potential.
Thank you for entrusting us with your precious children who make every day at Bonlee School such a wonderful place to be! You are welcome here!
