Last night the brothers of Delta Phi Iota Honor Service Fraternity hosted several check and connect students from Cumberland Mills Elementary at last night’s home game. These young men were being rewarded for working hard to make improvements in their academics, behavior, and attendance! They had a great time as they sat court-side and participated in the halftime festivities. They were even given a huge round of applause as they were acknowledged before a packed house!  Many thanks to Mrs. Booth, Dr. Taylor, Mr. Gillespie and Mrs. Neal for making this possible!
