AVID Students Attend NBA AVID Day
On Friday, November 22, the Spring Valley AVID students attended the NBA AVID Day. This event was hosted by the Charlotte Bobcats. After arriving at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, the students met members of the Bobcats Executive Staff and listened as they gave information about career selection and education preparation. Students were also able to visit with colleges from NC and SC in a college fair at the arena. One student, Destiney Jones, was selected to shadow a Bobcats Executive as they made the pre-game preparations. She attended mascot, cheerleader, and player warm-ups, was announced at mid-court (even appeared on the jumbo-tron) and was on the court to high-five the visiting Suns. At 7:00p.m., students were invited to stay and watch the Charlotte Bobcats take on the Phoenix Suns. Although the Bobcats lost the game, the experience they gave the students was a win!
