Fishing, baseball and health grants filled the bulk of the agenda at the February meeting of the Cannon County Board of Education.
Bonnie Patterson announced that the school system will be a recipient of a grant from Tennessee Department of Health as part of their 2019 Access to Health through Healthy Active Built Environments. It has been proposed to construct a walking track at Cannon County High School.  The high school is the only school in the system that does not have a walking track. The grant is for $20,000.00 and it is believed the amount will cover the entire project. As with the other walking tracks, they will also be available for public use.
On baseball the board reviewed bids for the construction of a fieldhouse. Summit Concrete was awarded the foundation contract and Davco Construction was awarded the building contract.
Jeremy Gunter addressed the board about establishing a fishing team for the high school. The board approved.
