Aspiring Archers to Bring the Sport to More Bossier Schools
Educators from Bossier Parish Schools lined up side by side for their inaugural lesson in a sport that has taken the district by storm. Archery.
Robert Stroede, Coordinator of the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries’ Archery in Louisiana Schools Program, held a day-long workshop at Carrie Martin Elementary that was maxed out in attendance.
“All of my trainings throughout the state are filled to capacity,” Stroede said. “There is definitely an increasing demand.”
Carrie Martin and Meadowview plan to offer archery at their schools. So do Parkway and Benton High School, through their ROTC programs.
Debra Vanderpool and Teresa Pennington, both teachers at Meadowview, decided to team up when Principal Dr. Shelly Barrett asked for volunteers to serve as archery team instructors and sponsors.
“We hope it helps with getting students to focus and to improve discipline,” Pennington said.
Another teacher nodded, relating her own experience as archery coach at her school.
“It has been a lifesaver for one of our team members with autism. It helps her focus.”
