Timiya Murphy, 17, of Tarboro recently completed her fourth year of Summer Community Fitness and Cheer Camp for youth in the community.
Girls ages 8-13 participated for six weeks in the camp, which ended with an awards ceremony in which each girl received an award. The girls learned life-long skills about leadership, having a healthy body and mind and the importance of giving back to their communities. They collected packs of pencils to help fill backpacks for disadvantaged children in the community.
Timiya said is grateful for the two sponsors she had who helped make this all possible. Because of them, the girls received T-shirts and were treated to dinner after the awards ceremony.
Timiya is the daughter of Timothy and Tiffany Bridgers.
