The Indian Trail Elementary students showed great leadership skills by synergizing and beginning with the end in mind. Happy holidays, Indian Trail 3rd graders!!

ITES 5th Graders Attend Wingate University's Future Bulldog Day

 Wingate, N.C.----The Wingate University women’s basketball team hosts the third annual Future Bulldog Day Tuesday, Dec. 9, as the Bulldogs will face Shaw in an 11 a.m. game in Cuddy Arena. Future Bulldog Day is an event for local fifth-grade students to visit the Wingate campus for a day and enjoy tours, motivational speakers and NCAA Division II basketball.

Ten local elementary schools will send 1059 students and chaperones to the event. Eight schools from Union County (East, Rock Rest, Indian Trail, Poplin, Prospect, Waxhaw, Wingate and Unionville), one school from Anson County (Peachland-Polkton) and one school from Mecklenburg County (Polo Ridge) will attend the third annual Future Bulldog Day.

“(Future Bulldog Day) is one of the neatest community service projects we do each year,” Wingate head women’s basketball coach Ann Hancock says. “I think it provides hope for a bright future to students who might not otherwise realize the opportunities available to them through education. Their excitement and enthusiasm are inspirational to everyone involved.”

“This field trip is important to show our students what the future can hold and help them to strive for their dreams,” Indian Trail fifth-grader teacher and grade-level chair Suzanne Feinstein says. “It fits into our Seven Habits of Healthy Kids by showing students if they ‘Put First Things First’ and ‘Begin With the End in Mind,’ they can accomplish great things in their future.”
