? Based upon two successful seasons of the “pilot” program at Silver Creek, the West Clark Community School Board has been asked to approve the start of the football program in Henryville.
At the December school board meeting, booster member Linda Uhl, supported by parents and members of the community, asked the school board to put the Henryville vote on their agenda for the January meeting.
There has always been strong community support for the implementation of this new athletic program but the school board elected to make Silver Creek a “pilot” before approving other programs. Success of the pilot program was based not only on game scores but noticeable improvement in academic performance, attendance and behavior in players. Teachers and school administrators have commented on the positive changes they have observed in members of the football team.
If you are interested in getting the football program in Henryville schools underway, the Boosters encourage you to attend the January school board meeting. The meeting will be held on Thursday, January 8 at the West Clark Community School Administration building next to Silver Creek High School. The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m.
