Preschoolers learn about mushrooms

Jim Scruggs, local Country Insurance agent and outdoorsman, visited Princeton Christian Academy’s Sonshine Preschool the week of Oct. 21 to teach the children about mushrooms and “puff balls” that are found in the woods. The children were intrigued with the large white balls and the different uses they have. Students pictured with Scruggs are Brennen Emmett (from left), Kaylyn Friel, Brayden Bickett, Elyse Anderson, Alice Scruggs, Elizabeth Konie, Marek Johnson, Abigail Harris, Jett Schaill and Michael Glass.
