Lawrence/Nelson takes part in  NASP (National Archery in the Schools Program) through a grant applied for a few years back.  Beth Himmelberg and Alycia Watts have helped to implement this program during our PE instruction time with Mr. Blevins at the MS/HS and with Mrs. Biltoft at the elementary.  A huge thank you to them for their help, and a big CONGRATS to these students on some outstanding finishes and national qualifying finishes!  Winning state and having that many top ten finishes is quite an honor!
