After a week to rest and prepare, several members of the Bullard Panther and Lady Panther track and field teams will be taking on the competition from around the East Texas area this week. Thanks to their strong finishes at the District 15-4A track meet on Wednesday and Thursday, April 4-5 at Spring Hill High School, the teams will travel to compete at the UIL Class 4A Area 15/16 Track Meet, scheduled for Thursday, April 19, at Carthage High School.
The Bullard Rotary Club recently sponsored a total of four junior students attending Bullard High School to take part in the annual Rotary Leadership Youth Award (RYLA) camp, taking place in February at Clements Scout Ranch in Athens. RYLA is an international program that was created by Rotary International to encourage strong leadership in youth. Young people chosen for their leadership potential attend an all-expense-paid camp to develop and enhance leadership skills through activities conducted in an atmosphere of trust and respect.
