Howling winds in SD can’t stop us!

We had another great Ask, Listen, Learn event with Attorney General Marty Jackley in Rapid City, South Dakota yesterday. Three hundred 6th graders at Southwest Middle gathered in the gym for the presentation, though we are lucky the Attorney General made it! Winds were 70 MPH in Rapid City, and General Jackley’s plane was unable to take off. Luckily, he made a last-minute decision to drive, and showed up ready to play the Xavix game!

General Jackley took off his shoes to run on the matt, but these students had obviously been practicing in class to get higher scores. Our field representative Dana said they asked more questions of the General than any group before, and even with the howling wind outside, they shouted YES to a healthy life style and NO to underage drinking so loudly that the entire school could hear it!
