    Many football fans and some of the “experts” thought that Manning had played his last game after an injury sidelined him seven weeks ago.

    The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) boasts a motto of ‘Changing Lives One Arrow at a Time’ and that is exactly what it has done for thousands of students all over the world.
    Harrison County’s Kennedy Sumpter, 13, is just one example of the way that this motto is lived out.
    Born Nov. 12, 2002, Kennedy was a “happy, bright-eyed little girl with a great life ahead of her,” said Darren Collins, Kennedy’s father.
