Two years ago, CPCC alumnus Thomas Cooper stopped playing the game he loved.
From coaching resignations and program breakdowns, he played for three different U.S. basketball teams in three years and, frustrated with the instability, was without a team.
Today, he’s the leading scorer in the Canada West conference for the Calgary Dinos and has found solace over 3,500 km away from his hometown of Chattanooga, Tenn.

The weather continues to look like a certain wash-out Wednesday, so CPCC has decided to move Springfest to Thursday, April 19, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., on the Overcash lawn. While the date has changed, the event will still boast the same features and schedule of events.
International countries will have tents with displays, flags, traditional dress and information about their country. Campus clubs and organizations will also be giving out information and selling various items so remember to bring your cash!
There will also be live entertainment!
- The Silvertones Steel Drum band, 10 a.m. – noon
- Yasmine and Magic Hips (Belly dancing), noon – 1 p.m.
- Polynesian hula dancing and fire/knife display, 1:15 – 2 p.m.
Basketball and sumo-wrestling inflatables will also be available for fun!
Student Government Association candidate speeches will take place at 1 p.m. Online voting at the SGA tent will be available.
