Price signs with Hunter College

After completing a string of three baseball signees, Priceville would add a string of three basketball signees. The first player to sign a basketball scholarship would be Kenzie Price who signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Hunter College in New York City, New York.

A reception was held in Price’s honor in the gymnasium of the new Priceville High School. Friends, family, coaches and teammates were in attendance to congratulate Price on her accomplishment and wish her well in her future endeavors.

Head Priceville girls basketball coach Terrie Nelson knows that Price will succeed at Hunter. “I am really excited for her and what she is going to do at Hunter,” Nelson said. “I was amazed at how much she worked to pursue going to New York. I think that it is a great testament to her independence that she is willing to go so far off to pursue her goals and dreams and I respect her for that.”

Price didn’t shy away from her feelings about always wanting to go to New York and the excitement to be able to go to Hunter. “I have always been in love with New York City” Price said. “I have never felt that I belonged here in the south. At first I want to go to NYU but their tuition was really steep but then I found Hunter and it all just worked out. They are a really great academic school which just makes it that much better.” Despite her wanting to move to the bigger city, Price was quick to point at the lessons that she has learned while being in Priceville. “We have had a lot of tragedy in recent weeks here at Priceville with two deaths and something that I have learned is how close the people here are,” Price said. “It amazed me just to see the whole school and community come together and it really made me want to find something like that when I get to Hunter.”

Price graduated from Priceville this year and will start at Hunter in the fall.
