Richland Middle School Presents Check to G.R.A.C.E.

The Richland Middle School Student Council recently presented a check to Greater Richland Area Cancer Elimination (G.R.A.C.E.). The money was from a fundraiser completed in November, in observance of Prostate Cancer Awareness month at the Middle School. Each Friday the council had a special event the students could participate in for a one dollar donation. The events included mustache day, hat day, tie and crazy socks day, game day, and pajama day. A little extra incentive was added to the event when Mr. Martin, the physical education teacher, agreed to shave his legs if the students raised $200, and Principle Meyer elected to join him if $500 was raised. At the end of the month, the students raised $315 and Mr. Martin came to school in shorts showing off his freshly shaven legs. The co-advisors for the Student Council are Laura Way and Annie Ewing.
