Dear assignment editors, journalists and broadcasters,
 
This is not your typical summer basketball camp. The focus is sports AND education. The at no-cost “We Believe!” Camp invites Jr. and Sr. High school students from the DeValls Bluff, Hazen and Biscoe area to learn basketball skills and hear from alumni who have graduated from the small-town, delta area - teachers, doctors, lawyers,

 

managers, media professionals and military service members. The “We Believe!” Camp provides free jerseys, shorts, shoes and lunch for the students.

Many volunteers and speakers take vacation time to spend with our students. Some alumni have traveled as far as Atlanta, GA to share their life experience, the importance of sports and education.  Former Biscoe resident and Camp coach, Lee Rhoden graduated from DeValls Bluff and Hendrix College, playing on the Hendrix basketball team.  Camp Director U.S. Army Major Johnpaul Arnold will be attending this year. The previous two years, Maj. Arnold was deployed to Afghanistan. Arnold grew up in DeValls Bluff graduated from Ouachita Baptist University.
