Boom Squad Kids Learn Business Skills

Students with the Boom Squad learned business skills on Saturday, March 6th by working with area food truck vendors.

It's an Evansville organization working to support kids succeeding.

The Boom Squad is a youth drum line and dance squad for students.

Earlier on Saturday, March 6th, members volunteered to work and learn from food truck vendors.

And one young man, Bryson Underwood, who graduated from the program last year, came back just to help. 

"To show kids that some people actually care -- and to get the community involved," he said. "It didn't feel right if I left people behind. I can't leave anybody behind. I am honestly trying to build the younger kids up to be the best they can be."

The Boom Squad meets everyday after school at 3 p.m.

It's a free program for any student in between the ages of 4 and 17-years-old.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
