GCT students start the day with a little competition

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - Greene County Tech students started their day outside of the classroom with a little competition Thursday morning.

GCT hosted their 6th annual Eagle Flight Fun Run, a one-and-a-half-mile course around the elementary and junior high campuses.

Eva Williams placed 10th in the 4th grade fun run and said she enjoyed having fun with her classmates outside of the classroom.

"It doesn't really matter that I placed 10th," Williams said. "I'm just glad I placed and had fun."

GCT hosts this event in an effort to encourage students to lead a healthy lifestyle and to become more active.
