Balloons helped teach USD 257 board members the value of a program that links freshmen with seniors at Iola High School.
Board members were given two balloons each and told to keep them in the air. The balloons represented students, and the exercise was meant to show how difficult it is to keep them at a high level of success.
In one minutes time, very few balloons remained in the air.
