WUHS students raise money for Humane Society

The West Union High School yearbook/newspaper staff hosted a fundraising “Spirit Week” in early October. During the week, the staff collected money from teachers and students at school to give to the Humane Society of Adams County, which is run solely on donations.

Students were able to dress in extravagant ways if they paid to do so. On Monday, the students hosted a Hat Day, on Tuesday, the students hosted a Twin Day, on Wednesday, the students hosted a Decade Day, on Thursday, the students hosted a Wacky Tacky Day, and finally on Friday, the students and teachers swapped places.

The week was very successful and both the teachers and students enjoyed dressing up for a good cause. The money was delivered to the Humane Society on Thursday, Oct. 8.

The members of the 2015-2016 WUHS yearbook/newspaper staff are Trace Brown, Logan Clifford, Molly Fetters, Zach Gregoire, Ashley Hackworth, Jacob Miley, Morgan Brown, Joseph Poynter, Sampson Riddell, Madelyn Sanders, Jordan Spires, Christa Williams and advisor, Ms. Jamie Puckett.
