On behalf of the Winthrop University student-athletes and coaches who traveled to Haiti recently on the FCA Mission Trip, I want to thank the editors of The Herald for providing an opportunity in your paper for members of our women's basketball team to share their experiences during the four-day journey. As head coach Kevin Cook said before the group departed, the people who make a trip like this often get more out of the experience than those they go to serve.
That thought was very evident through the emotional and thoughtful daily diaries our athletes shared with The Herald’s readers. We are very proud of our service-oriented student-athletes and we hope the Rock Hill and York County communities are as well.
Assistant athletic director
