AMI Kids, MCSD students treated to final home game of season for Carolina Panthers

CHARLOTTE — Marlboro County High School senior Elijah Blair planned to never take for granted that he not only attended a Carolina Panthers game but got to meet Defensive end Julius Peppers.
"Not many people get to do great things like this. It is indescribable," he said. "I am at a loss for words."
Nine students from AMI Kids Infinity Marlboro and four from the Marlboro County School District along with staff and others attended the Dec. 23 Panthers' game against the Atlanta Falcons.
They were the guests of Peppers, who had visited the county in October after Hurricane Florence. While here, he helped with the muck and gutting of homes, served food and met with flood victims.
While he was here, MCSD Superintendent Dr. Gregory McCord asked Peppers to the speak to the students at Infinity Marlboro. Due to time constraints, Peppers was unable to do it but wanted to have an opportunity to speak with the students so he provided tickets and VIP access for the game.
