The Edmundite Missions held a “Basketball Blessings” event for the Selma High boys’ and girls’ basketball teams last week.

The Missions presented both teams with windbreaker jackets and new practice uniforms for the Lady Saints. The school also received a banner with the Edmundite Missions logo and reads “Proud sponsor of Selma High Saints Basketball. Blessings to our Saints!” The Missions will provide meals twice a week to the teams and give them a banquet at the end of the year.

Selma High Principal Stoney Pritchett and several basketball coaches were part of the presentation.

Missions President and C.E.O. Chad McEachern said it’s about supporting the youth and the community through sports and the school system.

“We may not know each of you on a personal level, but we still believe in you and believe in Selma,” McEachern said. “At the Missions, we are also a team. In order for us to be successful, we have to trust in each other. We are honored to put our trust and support in you with these uniforms, and this banner will hang because we believe in you as a team.”
