Free physicals are a big help
Placeholder Image

Dear Editor,
On August 6, 450 athletes from USD 428 received free athletic physicals.
This tradition for more than 30 years has served the community of Great Bend well.
More than 13 local physicians, four nurses, and over 25 athletic coaches and personnel volunteered their time for this activity saving the parents of Great Bend thousands of dollars in medical costs.
I have visited with many school administrators throughout the State of Kansas about this activity. There is not another school system that provides free physicals to their athletes.
A big thank you goes out to everyone who donated their time and services and especially to Dr. Preston who has organized this activity for many years.
We are truly blessed and fortunate to live a community of caring and giving people.
David Meter,
