Charity Ball Success!

We had over 75% of students attend our first-ever charity ball. They raised 450 dollars and brought in hundreds of items for Northwest Coalition to End Homelessness. Thank you to all of those who chaperoned, donated items, and all others who helped make this event such a success. We would also like to give a special shoutout to the Giving Season Student Committee as well as Stephanie Slawnik for all of her work in helping our students.
