Mr. Jed Wilkinson is a social studies teacher at Harrison High School and he is working alongside former Purdue basketball player and B1G Defensive Player of the Year Rapheal Davis to bring his 'Bigger Than Basketball' Summer Camp to Harrison High School for the week of June 21st. Ray has worked tirelessly to bring camps back to the Lafayette area where he feels the community was such an integral part of his success at Purdue. Ray has mentioned to Mr. Wilkinson multiple times about how much it meant to have a full Mackey Arena and the support of the fans through a last place finish so being able to give back a little bit through his camps and impact lives of young people here is important.
The camp will run from June 21st through June 24th from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. If a student is unable to attend camp due to financial hardship, Ray has emphasized that he has available scholarships to allow students to attend. This is a great opportunity for all of our kids in TSC to meet a wonderful member of the Purdue Basketball family who has worked tirelessly to create impactful and meaningful camps to help our community. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Wilkinson directly through email or call the number listed on the attached flyer. If they can be of any more help, please let them know so we can make this initial basketball camp successful and hopefully continue into next summer as a part of what our community can offer our students!
