MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College women’s basketball team recently made a trip to the local Boys and Girls Club in Milledgeville to help with the “Power Hour” homework program.

As part of a continued effort toward giving back to the Milledgeville community, More than 10 members of the team attended with head coach Maurice Smith.

“The team enjoys helping out with homework,” said Smith. “Some of them make monthly trips and really enjoy tutoring the kids.”
