The 2023-24 season wrapped up again with a gala banquet at the North Ridge Country Club. Our 60th anniversary was made even more sweet by the achievement of both the Wolfpack men and women’s basketball teams reaching Final Four status along with successful campaigns by the Tar Heel and Blue Devil teams. And, it was not long since the NC State football team wrapped up another outstanding season making it fitting that our banquet speaker was Grant Gibson, a former captain and All ACC performer for the Wolfpack squad.

A wonderful feature of each banquet is the opportunity to celebrate and recognize four talented local student-athletes and one Wake County high school coach. As in past years, we honored the very deserving local high school student athletes each with a $2,000.00 scholarship and we recognized the outstanding Wake County High School Coach with an honorarium of $1,000.00.
