What does high-flying basketball, tons of laughs, and integrity all have in common? The Harlem Ambassadors, that’s what. Leon High School Gym was full of families that couldn’t wait for the game to get started. The Harlem Ambassadors took the court against the Chamber Challengers in a fast-paced, fun, show style basketball game. While the Chamber Challengers gave it a good run, the Harlem Ambassadors came out on top, winning the game and winning the hearts of Leon County and Jewett, Texas folks.
After the game, children and adults lined up to get signatures of all the Harlem Ambassadors team members.
The Harlem Ambassadors presented a certificate of appreciation to Chamber President Chad Prior for hosting the Harlem Ambassadors.
Here’s another shot of even more students waiting to get signatures.
