MONROE - While some of her classmates are sleeping in this summer, Monroe High School sophomore Alysha Witt remains on a mission to get stronger. There are more than 900 children enrolled in summer school, and Witt is one of 100 students in five classes taking a strength and conditioning class. The six-week strength and conditioning course is team-taught by Monroe High School physical education teacher and football coach Curt Miller and Tom Witt, the technology and engineering teacher who is an assistant football coach.
