Idaho Trip with FITS

Last week, I had an amazing adventure in the lovely state of Idaho with Fencing In The Schools. Pocatello and Rigby are the first two communities outside of NY to receive Fencing In The Schools programs, launching in a couple weeks. I went out with Olympians Tim Morehouse and Jeff Spear to document their assemblies and workshops with the teachers. Check out some of the photos below!
