The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sandhills is thrilled to announce the 2017 Sponsor a Child Kick-Off Luncheon is to be held on Thursday, September 7, 2017. Dereck Whittenburg, a member of North Carolina State University’s 1983 NCAA National Championship basketball team will be our keynote speaker for the event.
Mr. Whittenburg re-joined the Wolfpack in the role of Associate Athletic Director for Community Relations and Student Support in October 2015. Prior to accepting his current position, Whittenburg worked with the Wolfpack Men’s Basketball program as Senior Assistant to the Head Coach/Director of Player Development for two years. As Associate Athletic Director for Community Relations & Student Support, he works to develop and promote programs aimed to benefit current & former student-athletes. He also works to develop relationships with businesses in the Raleigh-Durham and surrounding areas regarding future employment opportunities for graduates. In addition, he also works to encourage former student-athletes to return to NC State in order to complete their degrees. We are very lucky to be hosting Dereck Whittenburg, a part of a legendary NC State basketball team, for this event in the fall!
