BLACKFOOT â€” Todayâ€™s teenagers have a new hobby: taking selfies.
A 2013 Pew Research Center study found 91 percent of teens share photographs theyâ€™ve taken of themselves online, posing with friends or showing off their latest hairstyle.
School report card selfies have yet to go viral. But the Zions Bank Pays for Aâ€™s program might change that with Mountain View Middle School students like Cassie McDaniel, who won a $100 scholarship savings account in the programâ€™s spring drawing.
BLACKFOOT â€” The Mini Mermaid Running Club (MMRC) started practicing two weeks ago. This club is only for girls.
These elementary girls are preparing to run in Tommy Vaughn's 5K run in May.
"MMRC focus on teaching girls to realize their full potential," said coach Josie Dye. "We use games, journal activities, team building and strength training. It's fun stuff."
The girls are taught the tools necessary to be strong and confident, and to see these things inside themselves. Each practice/lesson is aimed at helping every girl to see how amazing she is, regardless of her circumstances.
