Paninski honored for archery skills

Assemblyman Will Barclay, R-Pulaski, recently honored Altmar-Parish Williamstown High School’s Jarid Paninski for capturing first place in the New York State National Archery in the Schools Program competition. Barclay is pictured above presenting Paninski with an Assembly resolution. This spring, the state Assembly recognized Paninski for capturing the title in archery. The National Archery in the Schools Program is a cooperative effort between conservation agencies, school systems and private organizations to bring the sport to students across the state. It’s designed to encourage and improve participation in outdoor-type activities among students of all abilities. The state Senate, at the request of Sen. Patty Ritchie, also passed a resolution honoring Paninski. Pictured above are APW Archery Club Adviser George Parker, then-APW High School Principal Jamie Coppola, Paninski, Barclay, and then-APW District Superintendent Gerry Hudson.
