So last Saturday on September the 3rd, the University of the Cumberlands had their first official UC football game! My friends and I decided to go out and support the Patriots in their game against Belhaven University. The ball game was very fun because I got to hang out with friends and support the Patriots in football and see them excel over the other team – a great first win on the home field! They also had a place to get your face painted to help you show your school spirit and whoever had the most school spirit won a prize.
I went home for the first time this past weekend for Clay County Days. For those of you that doen’t know what Clay County Days are, it is a little festival where they have a local band play, they sell funnel cakes and shaved ice and they have it in the middle of town. Almost every one in Clay County attends it because there is nothing else to do in Clay County. This year me and my friends Caleb, Garrett and Turquoia Johnson, a new friend from Cumberland took out my best friend Duane Jones’ cousin Brandi, who is from Las Vegas to the CC days. We had a ball getting to see her reactions to all that the CC days could bring and her new experiences in Clay County.
Sunday was also a good day. We woke up around 9:30 and went to meet Ezra Anderson and some other people to go to church at Cornerstone Community Church. They had invited us to several church events like Worship on the Porch (on Wednesdays) and a Labor Day cook out after the service this past Sunday. The hospitality of the churches and UC’s staff is just so admirable. They have only your best interests in mind and aren’t trying to push church on you or anything like that. They just want to see you excel to a higher level and want to help you in any way possible.
This has been another episode in the life of Zac Kemp at the big UC.
