Despite the fact that our town is a rural, mill town, many of my students live in poverty. Because it is a small school, the students are close and support one another. They are inventive and social. They work hard and are very supportive of one another. Because of this small-town upbringing, it is difficult for our students to look beyond this small community and what is offered out there.
Our administration and community are very supportive of the local schools and the students benefit from this support.
The students of my school give back to the community through many activities as they appreciate the community they live in.
The young athletes that this grant will help support are in grades 4 - 7. Currently, a few of them travel to a neighboring town for lessons but not all have the means or the ability to do this.
This grant will help to purchase needed equipment for this new wrestling club.
It has been several years since our high school has fielded a team because students do not come to the high school with the necessary skills. This program will support students, help them gain skills and foster the love for the sport. The headgear will ensure that the athletes are safe.
