Dawkins, Hannah conduct camp
The Kenny Dawkins and Clevin Hannah Youth Basketball Camp was held June 29 at the Eddie Lee Smith Multi-Purpose Center. The former Holly Springs High School players, who led the Hawks to back-to-back state championships in 2004 and 2005, went on to excel at the college level, and both continue to play professional basketball abroad, Dawkins in Brazil and Hannah in Spain. The camp was for youth ages 7-15 (girls and boys), and the gym was filled with participants not just from Holly Springs and Marshall County but other areas.
For additional photos from the basketball camp, see page 6. Both Dawkins and Hannah said they enjoy returning to their hometown to be a positive influence on youth and give back to the community.
