A team of Wiregrass kids are on a motivational speaking tour, promoting "mind over matter" to elementary and middle schoolers.
In News 4's "For the Children," we tell you about volunteers and members of the Wiregrass Boys and Girls Club, who are part of "Team Conquest." They're teaching other kids about how to defeat circumstances that seem impossible, such as underage drinking, drugs and other struggles. They reach the kids by physical examples, such as bending rebar, breaking bricks and tearing phone books.
This is the only "Team Conquest" at any Boys and Girls Club nationwide. Their next stop is Slocomb Elementary School and will soon be performing in Cottonwood.
