Fannie Lou High School Wins Basketball Tournament
The boys basketball team at Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School, a Children’s Aid community school, achieved their dream of winning the Division B basketball championship on March 17. After a very successful season, including a record of 28-3 and a nearly three-month winning streak, Fannie Lou’s 63-58 win came as no surprise against opposing team Wingate Education Campus.
Several of the championship team members have had strong connections to Children’s Aid throughout their basketball careers and schooling. Some participated in our basketball after-school clubs, and others were active with our academic services in our center at Fannie Lou. And Children’s Aid’s partnership with Helen Keller International provided one student, Oscar Norales, with a donation of prescription basketball goggles.
Congratulations to Fannie Lou for an inspirational season!
