4-H teaches PCHS students to sew

Published 5:01 pm Wednesday, January 19, 2011

At the end of the 2010 fall semester students in Mrs. Bowman’s teen living classes at Polk County High School (PCHS) learned sewing basics from Polk County 4-H Program Assistant Helen Clark. Clark, who also helps oversee the county 4-H sewing program, has been helping with the PCHS class for the past three years.

“This is a great opportunity for our students to learn sewing through a terrific resource like Mrs. Clark,” said Bowman, teacher at PCHS. “Our students always learn a great deal and have a lot of fun while learning to sew. Without Mrs. Clark and 4-H, we could not provide this educational opportunity.”
