Mt. Vernon girl’s softball team thankful for Camelot Funeral Home’s sponsorship
Mount Vernon, like most cities across America, has to protect its vulnerable population of youth, especially its young ladies.
Thanks to caring parents and committed coaches, members of the Mount Vernon Girl’s softball team are being kept safe and busy doing something they enjoy immensely – playing softball.
Keeping a softball team intact and viable is costly, since there are spring, summer and fall tournaments, along with transportation and other related activities and expenses.
Fortunately, there is one Mount Vernon entrepreneur, Marcia Valentine-Oliver, principle of Camelot Funeral Home in Mount Vernon, who plays a major role in the success and sustainability of the team. She provides encouragement, morale support, and rewards the players for their academic achievements. The young ladies who play on the team have matured and stepped up to a higher level, thanks to Marcia's mentoring and sponsorship.
Marcia's dad was a former Mount Vernon detective, and she is a former educator who taught in Mount Vernon schools. When her dad died, the founder of the funeral home, she left teaching and became the principal of Camelot Funeral Home.
Coach Charles is truly grateful that he has Camelot Funeral Home as a sponsor, and so are his girls.
