Four lucky District Five students, along with many others across Spartanburg County, are getting a great start to the school year, thanks to the Carolina Panthers and Academy Sports! For another year, the NFL team and Academy hosted a back to school shopping spree for area students, making sure they have everything from bookbags to clothes to start the year off on the right note.
The event kicked off in "pep rally" style, as the students were greeted by the Panthers mascot, cheerleaders, and hometown favorite, wide receiver Brenton Bursin. Members of the Academy Sports staff then accompanied students and their families as they received $200 gift cards to use in the Spartanburg store!
District Five students Zion Young (Duncan Elementary), Tommy Tyler (Beech Springs Intermediate), Evelette Kelly, and Cameron Godfrey (Wellford Academy), all had a great time shopping and showing their Panther Pride!
Special thanks to the Carolina Panthers organization and Academy Sports for such a great event!
