NBA Experience

Ladies and Gentlemen's Clubs Members Have NBA Experience

Over 150 members of Laurens County School District 55’s (LCSD 55) Ladies and Gentlemen’s Clubs had the opportunity to visit the Spectrum Center in Charlotte on Monday night to watch the Charlotte Hornets host the Indiana Pacers in an NBA Matchup.

The trip was made possible through the generosity of Mr. Calvin Whitmire and his Bridging the Gap afterschool program and, by extension, the Charlotte Hornets organization who donated the tickets to the after school program. Students from each of LCSD 55’s nine schools were able to make the trip along with their adult club facilitators and members of the Bridging the Gap program.

LCSD 55’s spokesperson, Ed Murray, said, “The students and facilitators had a wonderful time. Ensuring our students have opportunities for new experiences is one of the key purposes behind our Ladies and Gentlemen’s Club initiative.” Murray went on to indicate that there is another major trip planned for April 22, 2017 when the district will take 200 students and their chaperones to a performance of the South Carolina Philharmonic at the Koger Center in Columbia, SC.
