Attendance Matters Flemming

Keithon Flemming, a running back for the Tri-City Fever football team, addresses Enterprise Middle School students about the Attendance Matters program Friday during the West Richland school's winter assembly. The program, sponsored by United Way and the Tri-City Fever, is designed to encourage students at 12 local middle schools to attend class every day. The Fever football team is offering every home room class an opportunity to win free tickets for the upcoming season. To qualify they have to have the fewest average missed days for the semester to earn a ticket. Earlier in the day, Flemming also made the presentation to students at Carmichael Middle School in Richland.
