Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School gets newly refinished basketball court

New London - The Women's National Basketball Association and Bona, a manufacturer of hardwood floor products, will unveil today a newly refinished basketball court at Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School.

Following the ceremony, which is not open to the public, Miss USA Erin Brady and WNBA All-Star halftime performer Trevor Jackson will direct a youth fitness clinic. About 74 children will participate in a series of exercise activities.

"We are elated with the degree to which the WNBA and NBA support the children of New London," Alison Ryan, the school's principal, said in a statement. "It has been a pleasure to watch the transformation of the gym into a renewed source of pride for the students of Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School."
