Cancer foundation benefit of fundraiser

The HHS Interact Club raised more than $5,500 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Along with the club selling t-shirts, several HPS staff members and HHS students volunteered to have their heads shaved as part of the fundraiser. Superintendent Ron Wilson, school board vice president, Michael Witt, and assistant principal Morrison Borders sat before hundreds of students at the Winterfest pep rally with their new crew-cuts. The following students also participated:

12th grade representatives: Edana Kelly, Shannon Schultz, and Nicholas Monak
11th grade representative: Brandon Benson
10th grade representative: Richard Davies
9th grade representative: Damian Menoch

The Interact Club partnered with the Brighton Fire Department to raise money for the foundation.

“People really feel connected to this cause because so many people know someone who has cancer. The response is phenomenal and it shows that the high school and community really care,” said math teacher and the club adviser, Karen Lessnau, in an earlier interview.
