Students participate in Super Bowl fun
During Super Bowl week, a group of Murray students were guests of the Jack Brewer Foundation at the West St. Paul Regional Athletic Center for “Trust 2 Protect,” an education program that brought together youth, police officers, and former and current NFL football players. The American Heroes National Launch Celebration included the Vikings Skills and Drills Challenge and the opportunity to interact with police officers during Cop Car demos. The highlight was former NFL linebacker and Hall of Fame inductee Ray Lewis’s talk on focus, persistence, consistency and overall putting yourself in positions to be successful.
