FSCC to host meet-and-greet for Adopt-an- Athlete program

Thursday, September 6, 2012

Fort Scott Community College is looking for host families for athletes who each year arrive at the college from across the nation.

A meet-and-greet will be held at 7:30 p.m. today in the FSCC Cafeteria to give families and athletes an opportunity to get to know each other and to match athletes with compatible families. There are no monetary transactions allowed under National Junior College Athletic Association rules. Families are asked to attend athletic events to support the student, offer that home-cooked meal and be a home-away-from home, a news release said.

To adopt an athlete, contact De Ann Welch, deannw@fortscott.edu, or call (620) 233-2700, ext. 4300.
