LUMBERTON — For the second consecutive year, Arrested Potential, Inc. hosted its annual At-Risk Children Golf Tournament in support of its after-school tutorial and computer lab, located in Lumbee Homes Public Housing Development, and Thomas Jones along with James Powers claimed the title.
“This year’s proceeds will be used to replace its inventory of computers, supplies and décor that were lost in the aftermath of the flooding from Hurricane Matthew,” said Gene Jones, head of the organization.
“We want the kids to be able to return to the safe and engaging learning environment that they had grown to love.”
