Jeff Hamilton and David Tanabe to attend
RALEIGH, NC—Jeff Hamilton and David Tanabe of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes will visit The Governor Morehead School on Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 1:30 p.m. The players will join the team’s Kids ‘N Community Foundation to help promote the mission of the school.
The Governor Morehead School’s goal is to successfully educate North Carolina’s youth with visual impairments to be productive, independent, confident citizens and life-long learners. This mission includes the responsibility to assist in the provision of consultative and technical services to other public and private state and national organizations in an effort to meet the needs of students.
The Governor Morehead School is the only state-supported school in North Carolina that specializes solely in comprehensive educational and residential programs designed specifically for students with visual impairments. Services of the school are supported by state and federal funding and are available at no charge to local school systems, students and families.
The Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina. With ongoing support from annual special events and the corporate community, the Foundation has funded scholarship programs, youth hockey, educational and literacy efforts, children’s health programs, the arts and other children’s related initiatives. Annually, the Foundation provides cash and in-kind contributions of more than $1 million to charitable and educational programs in North Carolina, such as Wake County Communities in Schools, Danialle Karmanos’ Work it Out Program, YMCA of the Triangle Area and the Boys and Girls Club. Every member of the Hurricanes organization is actively involved in community activities. The Hurricanes take great pride in the ability to have a positive impact in our state.
