Idabel Central Warrior Archery team traveled to Poteau, OK to compete in their first tournament and not only did a great, but they also had a great time! Team sponsor, Lyndsey Hastings, received the necessary training and we incorporated it with our ABC program. Harper McElroy came to my office one day and asked if it would be possible to have an archery class. Her dream became a reality for herself and others. I am super proud to be able to offer this program at Central Elementary! Great things are happening at Idabel Central!
