Knox Science Teachers Praised for Rafting Trip

Superintendent A.J. Gappa

The Knox Community School Board was given information about a recent outing by the advanced science classes to the Tippecanoe River State Park. Superintendent A.J. Gappa said science teachers Laurie Simmons and Marge Wood take the students on this rafting trip every year.

“It’s kind of a fun trip but it’s also educational,” explained Gappa. “They studied the environment, the ecology of the river and they did testing of water samples as they moved down the river to different stations. Different rangers were there to give demonstrations and lectures on different parts of the river.”

Three students gave a presentation to the board and gave praise to the teachers and for the opportunity to participate in this trip.
