4-H teaches PCHS students to sew

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.”
This year 37 students ranging from 9th to 11th grade participated in this special project.
