A little while back Pro-Line was approached by Keith Summerford a teacher at Southview Middle School about helping out with the Southview RC Club.Pro-Line was excited to help make learning fun and jumped at the chance to participate.
The Southview RC Club is an RC club at a middle school that is sponsored by a Keith who enjoys the RC hobby and wanted to use his knowledge and the fun of the RC hobby to enrich and supplement math and science instruction and connect teachers and students in a cross-curriculum format. The club is made up of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students and meets after school twice a month. The club is open to all students but is limited to around 20 students each year.
In 2013, Mr. Summerford, the Southview RC Club Sponsor, won the Honorable Mention Award for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics from the University of Alabama for his lesson about Ratios and RC.
Keith recently sent us an update and said, “Since the folks at Pro-Line were so good to us I wanted to update you on what we have going on. We have 18 students in the club this year. They are a mix of boys and girls from 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Everyone loves the new Slash’s and think the Pro-Line goodies really make them look killer. After you guys signed on we got Castle’s attention and they sent us some stuff for our RC18’s. The Pro-Line logo is proudly shown on our website, trucks, and all of the shirts we ordered this year. Thanks again!”
Thanks for thinking of us Keith! We’re glad that we could help!
