Greenbrier Elementary School students recently presented $1,020 to the Humane Society of Washington County, the nonprofit organization of student choice after a presentation in a Gifted and Talented Education, or GATE, enrichment class of fourth- and fifth-grade students.

Students researched 10 charities and gave a PowerPoint presentation, which led to a student vote in which the humane society was selected as the beneficiary of a fundraising effort.

The “Make a Difference” coin drive coordinated by the class was conducted schoolwide. Sarah McHenry’s second-grade class raised the most money — $160 — and received an extra recess and a treat from Kona Ice.

The students in the GATE class are fifth-graders Tyler Higgins, Nate Simpson, Tracy Kinzer, Holly Stover, Dylan Worrell, Marc Creter, Blake Morrow, Silvan Tipson, Ethan Holobinko; and fourth-graders Alli Jacobson, Skyli Shields, MacKenzie Kotch, Elizabeth Anderson, Gabe Leist, Phoenix Harvey, Jake Neff, Brooke Morrow, Samantha Briggs and Lindsey Sparkaman.
