Tim Tebow law: Every child, every opportunity

Every child, every opportunity

Every child, every opportunity

A grassroots movement is underway to pass a “Tim Tebow” law in West Virginia. Named after the home schooled football star who played on a local high school team, the bill would allow home- and private school students to participate in public school sports and other extra-curricular activities. About 31 states already allow access to extra-curricular activities to students outside the public school system.

Over the years, many MMS parents have expressed strong interest in exploring public school sports opportunities for their students.  A special information session on the status of a WV Tim Tebow bill was held on October 21 with Dr. Heather Clawges, a Lewisburg physician and mother of four, who has been spearheading a citizen effort to support such a law.
