Sports benefit the physical fitness and mental health of participants. They also offer the opportunity to work in a team environment, amplify leadership skills, and develop perseverance.

Recognizing this, Gates County Community Partnership recently decided to sponsor the athletic program at Gates County High School by providing an annual contribution to the Gates County High School Athletic Booster Club.

“It is important to give back and athletics matter to the educational and social development of our youth, which is our mantra. We want the best for our program and that requires financial support,” stated Brian Rountree of Gates County Community Partnership. “Also, local sports offer needed entertainment and boost the morale of our populace. Events present a chance for us to be together, which exposes and emphasizes our commonalities.”

Gates County Community Partnership is excited about the future of Gates County! They advocate working collaboratively for the uplift and advancement of all its citizens.
