Patrick Henry High School physical education classes received a grant from the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries to purchase 12 kayaks, paddles, and life jackets.
Patrick Henry High School PE students use the Emory and Henry Pool to learn about Kayak Fishing.
The students were able to take the kayaks to the pool at Emory and Henry to learn to kayak fish. Approximately 40 freshman participated this semester and hopefully all freshmen enrolled next semester will participate. This is the first step towards exposing students to kayak fishing and the opportunities of the great outdoors that could contribute to lifetime wellness. This program is supported by the 2017 Virginia Wildlife Grant Program through a partnership between the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and the Wildlife Foundation of Virginia.
