"The future is now! This is a logical tool to tap the potential of our youth through technology that they are familiar with; at the same time exploring the correlations of the science of technology; all while having fun in the spirit of competition," proclaimed Tyre Holloway, mayor pro tem and Parks and Recreation co-commissioner 

“If we are going to empower the next generation of scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs who will improve the economy, end hunger and improve the quality of life for rural North Carolinians, we must meet them where they are in order to lead them to where they want to be. eSports is the place to start”, says S.W.E.L.L. co-founder Jeff Epps. 

S.T.E.M. Wellness Empowering Lifelong Learners will be conducting an information session and sign up day on March 18, 2021 from 6-7 p.m. at the Dobbins Heights Community Center.
