Sinclair Men's Basketball Players Register to Vote

The Sinclair Community College (Ohio) Men’s Basketball team took time away from the busy preseason workouts to get registered to vote. Wednesday we had a special guest from the Montgomery County Board of Elections; Beverly King gave a presentation to the members of the Men’s Basketball team on voter rights and responsibilities.

Not only did Ms. King talk about the importance of this Presidential election cycle, she also spoke about how the Board of Elections works in relation to all aspects of the election process. 9 members of the Men’s Basketball team filled out voter registration and Ms. King was even able to assist two players from Indiana with their paperwork for registration in Indiana.

Today’s Voter Registration was just one of many educational components of the Men’s Basketball Player Enhancement Program (PEP). The program was developed as part of a long range goal to assist our young men and help them grow both on and off the court through guest lectures and off site visits. Some of the program highlights have included: tours of the White House, Arlington Cemetery, Supreme Court, US Capitol, Liberty Bell, Independence Hall (Philly) as well as speakers from the Secret Service, Sinclair Professors, local business professionals and former & current NBA & NFL players.
