Students contribute to hurricane relief

October 24, 2005

Representatives of the Smithsburg Middle School Student Council recently presented a check for $2,431 to Cindy Blackstock of the Washington County chapter of the American Red Cross to culminate a hurricane relief fundraiser.

Student Council members spearheaded a competition between grade levels and staff, putting collection containers in the cafeteria each day during lunch shifts. Donations were counted each day and recorded on thermometers in the cafeteria. The eighth grade produced the biggest contribution, with $942.69.

Representatives are Snigdha Rao, Suzanne Reed, Ryan Delauter, Justin Eckard and Samantha Koterwas; and Amanda Allen, Student Council adviser Lynn Izat, Blackstock, Student Council adviser Roman Ganoe and Tara Jacques.
