The below paragraph is a guest post from Athlete Channing Ewing from our Northwest Area about this past weekends State Fall Classic. To view the pictures from the fun filled weekend click here.
” I enjoyed meeting NFL official, Greg Gautreaux, at the Patrons Reception! I also got to meet some of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette mens basketball players and the Women’s Volleyball players. The dance was amazing and getting the Spirit stick was sweet too. I even won the costume contest! Kudos to Mr.Charlie for giving me a autographed copy of Tim Shriver’s new book. I’m looking forward to reading it. I might learn a few things or to that I can use as student leader and role model at BPCC( I am a SGA Representative). I also really liked the snowballs at the baseball facility.”
Thank you for sharing the highlights of your weekend with us, Channing!
