Sweetwater High School students will soon be casting lines and baiting hooks.

At the Feb. 14 School Board, meeting of the Monroe County Board of Education, Principal David Watts discussed started a Fishing Club at the school. By board policy, the school does not need permission to create a club, but Watts said he wanted the School Board's "blessing."

"We're very blessed with a lot of water to cover here," said Watts, noting that there would be a curriculum with the club. "It would teach students how to take care of these resources that we have here in Monroe County."

Watts said there are parents that are actively pursuing the club and want to be involved with their children.
