BAUXITE HIGH SCHOOL SWIM TEAM RECEIVES DONATIONS TO FUND EQUIPMENT
BAUXITE, AR – On Thursday, January 17th, Bauxite High School swim coach Dave Carter accepted new uniforms and equipment on behalf of his team.
Saline County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) School Resource Officer (SRO) Deputy Jennifer Tarvin has formed quite a strong bond with the coaches and students at the Bauxite High School throughout her tenure. In doing so, she noticed that the swim team didn’t have funding to purchase matching team uniforms or other basic equipment such as coolers and towels. She took it upon herself to partner with SCSO Dep. Chris Webb to raise private money to pay for the items the team needed. Overall, Dep. Tarvin and Dep. Webb raised over $1,000.00 in donations.
The donations were used to buy the team matching uniforms with each swimmer’s name on them, along with towels and equipment bags with the team logo. Coach Carter thanked the deputies for their help in acquiring the equipment. SCSO Chief Deputy Jay Fitzpatrick, who also attended the presentation, commented “The effort put forth in supplying the Bauxite Swim Team with new swimming apparel is “PARTNERSHIP” at its best. This effort is also an excellent example of the positive impact the police and the community can have when we work as one to make a difference.”
