On last Tuesday and Wednesday evening at Bryan High School’s football field, boot camp was in session.
It wasn’t the “hut-two-three-four,” run 15 miles uphill and then get down in the mud and crawl under barbed-wire type boot camp many think of. This camp had more of an academic flair — think a 15-mile uphill march for the mind.
It was no sooner than St. Mary Catholic Church priest, the Rev. Dennis Hanneman, said, “Amen,” than a group of eager students made a mad dash for the new playground at St. Mary’s Catholic Grade School.
It was a long time coming, considering it had been 20 years since the school had last updated its playground.
