  • Wee Warriors program will remain for 2011-12

    Special to the Local

    The Wee Warriors afterschool program in Eminence will proceed for the 2011-12 school year.

    “We believe it’s a valuable program,” Eminence Independent Schools Superintendent Buddy Berry said Monday.
    Lack of funding and low enrollment has put the decade-old program in jeopardy, but Berry said the board opted last week to continue the program.

    At its peak, the program had about 50 children, Berry said. This year, only 25 children are enrolled.
