MOREHEAD CITY — Two well-known NBA players delivered an inspiring message to members of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain at the Sunshine Lady Unit in Morehead City.

Transportation Impact, a packaging company located in Emerald Isle helped bring in players — Steve Smith and Dikembe Mutombo — to speak to the children about the importance of education and hard work to create a bright future.

NBA Champion and Olympic gold medalist Smith said, “Education can take you further than you can imagine, don’t take it for granted. Do it now!”

The camp included warm ups, drills consisting of shooting, dribbling, balance and coordination, footwork and more.

Smith highlighted how influential a person’s character is, saying, “Dikembe is a Hall of Fame basketball player, but more importantly, he is a Hall of Fame person.”

Boys & Girls Clubs promote academic success, good character and citizenship and healthy lifestyles, all of which the speakers touched on.

Dikembe said, “It’s important to show the kids their social responsibility, teaching them to stay out of trouble and to become a productive member of society.”

Member parent Emily Lewis said that without Boys & Girls Clubs, her son wouldn’t have anywhere to go. Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain strives to prepare members for life after high school, to be an engaged citizen with strong character and to adopt a healthy diet and lifestyle all while creating a safe and fun environment.

The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. There are 17 Clubs throughout Pitt, Beaufort, Lenoir, Martin, Greene, Carteret, and Craven Counties serving approximately 1,300 members daily.
