Pocahontas Principal Jason Rakers issued the challenge at the start of the school year and he recently fulfilled his promise to the students.

He wanted the boys and girls to reach a specific goal in the Accelerated Reader program. If it happened, the principal was willing to go into the dunk tank and let the students throw balls to put him down.

WGEL talked to Principal Rakers while he was in the tank before the balls started to fly.

Students earned the right to throw balls at their principal by reaching their individual reading goals. The majority of the boys and girls were able to participate and several of them put Principal Rakers into the water.
