Jerry Smith spoke to the Marion County Board of Education on Nov. 12 to request permission to create a bass fishing team at Marion County High School.
On Nov. 26, he got his answer when the board voted 4-1 in favor of adding bass fishing to the high school’s activities.
Board member Mike Cecil cast the dissenting vote. He said he still had a lot of questions about the program, and he wasn’t sure he was ready to vote on it.
“I hope I’m wrong on this whole issue,” Mike Cecil said.
