Youthful energy vibrated throughout MTSU’s Murphy Center Thursday (Dec. 12) as more than 7,000 Murfreesboro school children attended the Education Day women’s basketball game.
Children danced, screamed, high-fived and even learned a thing or two about math and science before, during and after the game, which saw the MT Lady Raiders (6-3) defeat visiting Kennesaw (Ga.) State University, 68-32, in front of 10,028 fans — fourth largest in program history.
More than 7,000 Murfreesboro City Schools’ students as well as students from the county’s Homer Pittard Campus School will be treated to science and math, an MTSU women’s basketball game and more Thursday, Dec. 12, during the second Education Day event in Murphy Center.
The MT women’s basketball/city schools partnership game will match the Raiders (5-3 and on a four-game winning streak) against visiting Kennesaw (Ga.) State University (1-6). Tip off will be at 11 a.m.
Human Rights Day in Tennessee has become a time to celebrate the leaders of yesterday and recognize those taking up the torch for tomorrow, a time to look at battles won and lessons learned as well as to inspire the youth of today to do something about the state of the world tomorrow. It occurs each year on December 10th, and this year the celebration will take place at the Howard Office Building in the Sonny West Conference Center.
