The 14th annual Triangle Golf Challenge reception benefiting Communities In Schools of Durham was held in June at the Croasdale Country Club. Sherrod Banks, president of The Banks Foundation, and the N.C. Central University Department of Athletics hosted the reception, which was sponsored by “The Sports Shop,” a radio show that stars DJs Erroll Reese and Kevin “K-Mac” McClendon. The live auction featured prizes that included a N.C. Central University basketball experience with LeVelle Moton, a UNC basketball experience with Phil Ford and a one-week vacation to Snowshoe, West Virginia. The next day, golfers hit the links to compete in a tournament, which benefited Communities In Schools as well as The Banks Foundation. More than $27,000 was raised for Communities In Schools, an organization that specializes in surrounding students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school, graduate on time and succeed in life.

I am a summer intern with Durham Magazine and Chapel Hill Magazine, and I'm probably the oldest intern they've ever had. After beginning my degree at Western Carolina University in 1983, I should graduate in August 2017. When I'm not at work, in class or working with this incredible team, my husband and I enjoy hanging out with our pets and playing pinball and 1980's arcade games.
