Play ball! Waynesburg Elementary receives equipment donation
Waynesburg Elementary School received a donation of a dozen brand new basketballs last week from the Waynesburg Little League Booster Club. Brittany Shackleford, president of the club, said that although the sports season has been pushed back this year due to COVID-19, she wanted to do something for the kids.
“We love our Waynesburg Tigers and we just wanted to give back and do something for the kids,” she said.
Waynesburg Elementary School Principal Dr. Amy Rigsby said she is pleased to receive the gift, and she knows the students will enjoy them.
“Brittany asked if that was something we would like to have, and I said, ‘Absolutely!’”
Shackleford, who has been coaching cheerleading for eight years, said she hopes the balls will help encourage the kids to play and be active. – Photo by Jeff Moreland
