Branch Elementary School students have some new athletic equipment to play with thanks to Edwards AFB’s Middle Tier Association, Air Force Security Forces Association and Chief Master Sgt. Todd Simmons, 412th Test Wing command chief. Recently, students brought home flyers requesting donations of physical education equipment for the school. Members of the MTA saw the flyers and contacted the principal to ask what was needed. The MTA got together with the AFSFA and Simmons and raised $900 to buy the new PE equipment. Everything from basketballs and footballs, to hula hoops and dancing ribbons were purchased and donated to the school Oct. 7, 2016.
