Brainerd School District officials have to cut at least $5-Million from next year's budget and one cost-cutting measure they intend to use is to increase student fees for school sports and activities. Crow Wing County Attorney Don Ryan is part of the Warrior Way, a group started by concerned parents and citizens who recognize the importance of extracurriculars. Ryan said academics are vital to a good education and in spite of financial challenges, he's convinced the district will continue to furnish a top-notch education. But he also knows how important activities are to young people. Ryan said he can't imagine looking at a perfect spelling test hanging on the wall for inspiration but he does look at a picture of his old football team everyday, more than once. Ryan said the Warrior Way intends to raise $220,000 by April to help pay for student activity fees. Eventually, the group wants to develop an endowment of $3-5-Million. The Warrior Way will meet in the Brainerd High School Cafeteria Monday night at 7pm if anyone has questions or wants to help out. Ryan said the group needs money but needs volunteers just as much.
