The Pattonville community programs department earned two grants worth nearly $3,000 from USA Lacrosse to support lacrosse programming for middle school students.
Pattonville earned a 2021 First Stick Youth Equipment grant worth $1,450 which provided the district with equipment for 10 field players and one goalie. Pattonville also earned a $1,500 grant from the USA Lacrosse National Diversity Grant Program.
“We will be using these grants to build the feeder program at the middle school level,” said JoAnn Greenwell, community programs supervisor. “This will offset some of the cost to make the sport more affordable to all students.”
