Cherokee County Herald - - FRONT PAGE - From Re­ports

Sec­ond grade stu­dents at Cen­tre El­e­men­tary School made a gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tion to Re­cov­ery Ef­forts in Chero­kee County on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, May 18.

The en­tire sec­ond grade fac­ulty along with Prin­ci­pal De­wayne Pierce and stu­dents made their pre­sen­ta­tion of a $1,000 check to WEIS As­sis­tant News Di­rec­tor Joey Weaver on be­half of the WEIS Ra­dio Disas­ter Re­lief Fund.

Sec­ond Grade Teacher Lana Jones said that the there were two field trips planned prior to the storms that dev­as­tated the area on April 27th – be­cause of the storms those trips had to be can­celled and par­ents were given the op­tion of ei­ther be­ing given a re­fund or do­nat­ing money to storm vic­tims.

Mrs. Jones went on to say that they were over­whelmed with the gen­eros­ity of their par­ents and stu­dents who de­cided to do­nate their field trip monies to help those who had been af­fected by the storms.

To date through the over­whelm­ing gen­eros­ity of the pub­lic the WEIS Ra­dio Disas­ter Re­lief Fund has been able to raise in ex­cess of $47,000 ben­e­fit­ing storm vic­tim’s right here in Chero­kee County.

The staff and man­age­ment at WEIS ex­tended ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the kids, par­ents and fac­ulty and staff at Cen­tre El­e­men­tary School for their very gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tion – and to all of you who have do­nated and con­trib­uted.
