Howard's Hope Has 10 More Grads To Eliminate Juvenile Drowning

  Email   Print
Today Howard's Hope, in collaboration with the Middle Tennessee State University aquatics department, welcomed ten more graduates of its Flying Fish program.
The Flying Fish program provides the funds necessary for needy children in Rutherford county to learn how to swim and is dedicated to eliminating juvenile drowning deaths in Tennessee. The current graduating class, comprised of students in the fourth through sixth grade at Murfreesboro city schools, began their lessons in early January. After 8 weeks of lessons taught on Saturday mornings at the MTSU Recreation Center pool, the children have now gained the life-saving, and life-changing, skill of swimming.
In February, a dozen children from Rutherford county schools began their Flying Fish swim program. They're scheduled to graduate in early April.
The Flying Fish program will close during the month of May for training and will resume in June. The summer program will also be taught at the MTSU Recreation Center. Children 6 years old through 14 years old, attending Murfreesboro city schools or Rutherford county schools, will be able to enroll. To receive an application, contact Steve Reeves, Executive Director of Howard's Hope at steve.reeves@howardshope.org.

Howard's Hope is also planning to offer the Flying Fish program in Shelbyville and Manchester beginning this summer.
