For many students at Central Elementary in McArthur, the school day extends past the 2:30 p.m. closure time as Project Boost begins. During this time, Audi Shonborn, who directs the program in the Central building, and the students do a variety of programs that give them an educational "boost" and enhance their knowledge of several topics. 

Soon, one of those speakers will be 4-H Educational Chair Travis West who will be speaking to the students on high-tech issues. The students also spend time in the library and cafeteria to enjoy a snack and some quality time with their friends. 

Over the years, the program has benefited many thousands of children and is important to Principal Terri Snider and her staff. The Program first came to the county several years ago as part of a pilot federal program to be started in an urban county (Franklin) and a rural county, which was Vinton. The program is operated in the elementary schools but middle school students can also go to the elementary school to attend.

Superintendent Rick Brooks has stated in the past that "Project Boost is one of the most important things we do and we support it."
