During the 2014-2015 school year, Mr. Ryan Shiveley’s second graders at North Adams Elementary School decided to help the animals of Adams County. They created and sold magnets for months, saving the money coin-by-coin until the end of the year. A check was presented this month from the Ohio Valley School District to the Humane Society of Adams County for $350.00.
“These funds will go a long way to help homeless dogs and cats get the care they need while they wait to be adopted,” said current Board President Jessica Huxmann. She went on to say, “It is just incredible what kids can accomplish with the right motivation for a great cause. We are so grateful to Mr. Shiveley for helping his students develop good character – these are the kids that will be leaders when they grow up.”
