Lynchburg Lions sponsor GOOD program


The Lynchburg Lions Club hosted its annual GOOD (Going On Or Defeated) program at Lynchburg-Clay Elementary School on March 18. The program is presented each year to all fifth-grade students by Ron Derry, a former teacher and coach who went completely blind. Since he lost his sight he has been presenting speeches and demonstrations to thousands of students. He stresses character, perseverance and integrity. Ten students will receive GOOD shirts at the end of the school year. Winners will be selected by the school faculty based on how they fulfill the characteristics promoted by Derry. Pictured is Derry (center) with some of the fifth-grade students after they heard his GOOD program. The program was sponsored by the Lynchburg Lions Club.
