Charter School receives grant for fishing poles

By Andrea Holata

BRIGHTON — Pemayetv Emahakv Charter School students in grades six through eight got out of their regular physical education class to go fishing with their new poles on May 30.

The school was recently awarded a grant for 100 fishing poles. Physical education teacher Chris Goodwin applied for the grant to help students experience different kinds of activities.

“I love for the middle school students to be involved in many different things and maybe spark their interest in something,” Goodwin said.

Student Spawn Loudermilk enjoyed the afternoon field trip and learned something new.

“I didn’t know fishing was a sport,” Loudermilk said.

Norman “Skeeter” Bowers, the Chairman’s special assistant, also came out to spend time with the kids.
