Vancleave High School Wrestling Receives Funding

The Vancleave High School wrestling team is so thankful for the $5000.00 R.E.A.C.H.E.S. grant that we received.  This grant enabled us to purchase new matching, high quality, large gear bags for all of our wrestlers.  We also were able to get robes for our kids to wear over the singlets in between matches helping us with a uniformed look.  Without this funding we would not have been able to purchase all of the items we did and we are very thankful that we were granted the opportunity to make this happen for these kids. Our program is a new program in the state of Mississippi and we have grown from 15 wrestlers to over 40 wrestlers and we see the popularity of this sport continuing to take root in our state. They all work so hard on and off the mat and promote the sport of wrestling to their peers. We are excited to watch this great sport continue to take hold in the state of Mississippi and again are so thankful to the R.E.A.C.H.E.S. grant program and Walt Fisk in helping us give a little bit of happiness to all of these hard working and amazing kids.  So thankful there are programs out there to help out so many kids in need and hope the next recipients are just as blessed as we were.
