With the new school year starting up again at Pegram Elementary, so is the running club. This year marks the second year for the Pegram Elementary Pacers. The goal of this afterschool club is to teach students teamwork and responsibility, as well as proper running techniques. This year there are 112 students that stay after school two days a week to train. Along with those students are five P.E.S. teachers and staff that head the club; Tammy Stewart, Katherine McLeod, Barb Mikhail, Lacey Duffel, and Deidrah Edwards and Crystal Eason. We are lucky enough to have a wonderful group of devoted parents who come to practice to help cheer us on, coach, handout water, and do many other things. The goal for training this year will be to prepare our runners for a race in late October. This race will not only provide our students with the opportunity to achieve goals, but all the proceeds raised from the race will go straight to the school and benefit the technology there. We are all looking forward to a great season this year with the Pegram Pacers!
