(ACORN) – For a high school program in rural Western Arkansas, pride is running high especially after only being a program for only seven years.
The hard work paid off and now the Acorn Archery team would like to get some help that would help pay for expenses in their trip to the National Archery in Schools Program (NASP) Archery Nationals that will be held in Louisville, Kentucy in May.
The team is going to nationals after winning the Arkansas NASP State competition. This is not only representing Acorn and Polk County, but the entire state of Arkansas. Acorn Archers have placed in the top ten at states, since its creation of the program.
The school has had individual winners previously at nationals, but this is the first time for the entire team to participate at the event.
Mindy Lyle, FCCLA / Archery Coach at Acorn High School said that the students will be holding a fundraiser on Thursday, March 28th that will include a Spaghetti Dinner and Dessert Auction, that will be held in the Acorn Cafeteria.
Lyle added that “the team is looking forward to representing Arkansas in Kentucky in May”.
The dinner will start at 5:30pm and the dessert auction will get underway at 6:30pm.
All proceeds will go towards the trip and any donations would be greatly appreciated.
