Summertime is no slow time at Texas A&M University-Commerce so long as young athletes and musicians have interest in summer camp. The campus plays host to a number of sports, music, teaching, and other special interest summer programs each year.

This month, Lions head basketball coach Sam Walker joins Dr. Dan Jones on The President's Perspective to talk about a recent basketball camp that drew talent, in the form of both campers and counselors, from around the nation.
