Spring has come early and with the melting of the snow you may have seen students along Highway 55 cleaning ditches last Tuesday. Back in February, the Kimball Area National Honor Society sponsored a food drive in the high school for the area foodshelf. There was a competition between grades to see who could bring in the most donations.
The eighth-graders took the lead and earned a trip to Powder Ridge tubing. The 10th-graders came in last and with that place earned a day cleaning ditches.
KAHS holds a two-mile stretch through the Adopt-A-Highway program on Hwy 55, starting in front of the school. This is the area that the 10th-graders cleaned on Tuesday, March 27. With that accomplished, the food drive project is completed.
The NHS still has a busy spring ahead of them though, because theyÊare continuing with community service projects. To start with, they donated children's socks to the battered women's shelter in St. Cloud (Anna Marie's Alliance). Some of their upcoming projects include: cleaning the ditches along their Adopt-A-Highway stretch in Eden Valley, cleaning the fire trucks, and sponsoring a Jr. Hi dance to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. More articles will follow on the group's progress as they finish their projects before the end of the school year.
