Teacher in the tank

Bartlett High teachers falls victim to the dunk tank
English teacher Chris Steele gets a dunking from the dead-on aim of Bartlett High School student Evan Bartles. She was one of several volunteers who braved the dunking booth at a “Go Jim Go” carnival held before Friday’s football game. The carnival raised $403, and that plus student donations took the total just over $1,000 for the charity led by Jim Jaggers, the News Channel 3 meteorologist who has ridden 333 miles across the Mid-South annually since 2006, raising money for Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. Donations since inception have topped $1 million, and the 2014 ride will be Sept. 24-Oct. 1. Potential sponsors or fundraising schools and businesses are invited to e-mail Antoinette Katoe, WREG special projects coordinator, at antoinette.katoe@wreg.com. For details on Go Jim Go, see the website. The Bartlett High dunking booth was sponsored by the Student Council, and the representatives were Matt Meyers and Heather Leslie.
