SHERMAN -- 684 4th graders had a field day at Sherman Bearcat stadium Friday.

It is a tradition that started 25 years ago with 4th graders racing against each other at Austin College. This year nine schools from Grayson County participated in the event.

Mike Gillum has coordinated the event for the last 18 years but says this year is his last.

"One of the most important things that I really feel good about is over the last 18 years that is over ten thousand kids that have I've been a part of their lives and they've been a part of my life and that is something that I will always cherish," says Gillum who is the Sherman ISD Elementary Facilitator who coordinates field day.

There were 23 different events the kids participated in featuring relays that come from other countries like england, greece, and japan.
