MORVEN - Ten years ago, HOLLA ..., 7 Dec 2015 [cached]
MORVEN - Ten years ago, HOLLA founder and CEO Leon Gatewood started Helping Our Loved Ones Learn and Achieve after hearing startling statistics on the test scores of young African-American men in Anson County Schools.
Gatewood said development of the tennis team was a three-year process made possible by support from parents, community members, the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust and the United Way under the direction of HOLLA activities director Alex Gaddy.
In fact, Gatewood said, the HOLLA Eagles need the community's support now.
The tennis courts are in need of resurfacing and new lighting, as well as new netting and a practice board. Unfortunately, Gatewood said, those items don't come cheap.
The Eagles also routinely need items like uniforms, equipment and travel expenses to and from tournaments. The team traveled to Florida earlier this year to participate in a national tournament and has become a member of the U.S. Tennis Association.
In order for these young men and ladies to continue on their paths of success, they need their community's support, Gatewood said.
In celebration of HOLLA's 10th anniversary and in honor of this team's achievements, the organization is kicking off a fundraiser for the Eagles with a goal of $25,000.
"It's definitely doable," Gatewood said.
