BC Lions linebackers Jason Arakgi and Adam Bighill are hoping they’ve given Nelson students something more important to think about than football.

The pair visited Rosemont Elementary and Hume Elementary on Wednesday to talk to students about sustainable living. The visit is part of the FortisBC Energy Champions program, which teaches students easy ways to save energy around the household.

Arakgi and Bighill were a big hit. The pair’s presentation included games, prizes and plenty of cheering from the students.
