For Yves Jean Baptiste, Thursday morning was the culmination of a life-long ambition.
The student at the Whitney M. Young, Jr. Job Corps Center in Simpsonville signed a full scholarship to play soccer at Campbellsville University.
“It’s a dream come true,” said Baptiste, 23. “This is a great school.”
Baptiste began playing soccer around the age of 5, when he lived in Haiti and kept it up as he moved to Wellington, Fla., and then to Simpsonville.
