Recently 50 students at Red River Junior High completed a hunter safety course. School Superintendent Alison Hughes says they worked with Roger Longino and the sheriff’s office to send the kids through the class work sessions and go to the Sheriff’s range and shoot. Hughes says one is planned for the high school this spring. And she adds this will become an annual offering at the Junior High level.
