MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Members of the Georgia College women’s basketball program are making an impact in the Milledgeville area outside the Centennial Center where they practice and play.
The team has recently joined forces with the Milledgeville Boys and Girls Club to help with “Power Hour”, an afterschool program geared towards helping kids accomplish more in the classroom.
The program runs every day after school, allowing Georgia College women’s basketball student-athletes to help tutor kids in subjects which they may be struggling.
“We do our best to help out a few times a month,” said graduate assistant coach Angelica Turner, “But, many of our girls go and help out even more when they have time individually.”
“Power Hour” helps to provide practical tips and help with behavior management for America’s youth.
The Bobcats will head to Dahlonega, Ga. this weekend to compete in the Chick-Fil-A Classic. They go up against the University of North Alabama Friday, Nov. 18 at 4 p.m., followed by a meeting with Trevecca Nazarene University Saturday, Nov. 19 at 2 p.m.
