Two students from Slater-Marietta Elementary School were recently honored by the Carolina Panthers in the Punt Pass and Kick Team Championships. Diane Parker and Jadeh Hellams both earned first place in their age division and were officially named the Carolina Panther PPK Team Champions.
After extensive warm ups and last minute preparations with their coach and physical education teacher Jody Childs, Diane and Jadeh went into the competition skilled and confident. With their new designation as first place representatives, they will represent the entire states of North and South Carolina in the national competition.
