Springstead High School will host the American Cancer Society Relay for Life April 20-21, and schools are planning their strategies. The Beta Club at Nature Coast Technical is planning its team theme, but details are hush-hush. Betas at Nature Coast also had a bake sale and a shoe box drive to benefit Dawn Center and Jericho Road.
Submarine Club prepares for action
The Hernando County Submarine Club, based at Springstead High, is inviting high school students and adults to participate in a most excellent adventure. They're building a human-powered sub for a national competition race in June. Designers, builders, divers, support crew and sponsors are needed. Watch for more details about the sub, Sublime, in Top of the Class later this month. Practice sessions include an exhibition race at Weeki Wachee in early March with teams from Virginia Tech and Florida Atlantic University. Contact Mr. Knowlton or Mr. Barton in the construction technology room in the 300 hall at Springstead.
