Well, that didn’t last long. 

Just a few months ago, more than 1,300 people in Shanghai, China, set the record for the world’s longest high-five chain only to have their feat outdone by more than 1,600 people inside Terre Haute’s Hulman Center on Tuesday afternoon.

 The chain of high fives started at 4:30 p.m. sharp with Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett. The last high five came 30 minutes later as Pamela Malone, an Indiana State University employee, smacked her hand against the raised hand of Jazmine McDowell, a fourth-grader at Sugar Grove Elementary.

Swim by 7 Program: Cool Pool School

Program teaches kids basics of water safety, swimming

TERRE HAUTE — Water safety instructor Devin Bull held on to the West Vigo Elementary kindergarten student as she floated on her back, a big smile on her face.

Three other children sat at the edge of the Vigo County YMCA pool, eagerly awaiting their turns with Bull to float, kick, splash or even submerge in the water.

An entire class of West Vigo kindergarten students, divided into smaller groups, learned the basics of water safety and beginning swimming skills as part of a pilot Swim by 7 program.
