Letter: Community backing supports students

The annual “Students to Europe” auction, which was held at Lapel High School on April 13, brought in $12,214. This total was an all-time auction high. On behalf of all the students who profited from this event, I would like to thank all workers, contributors and the attendees who showed their support by purchasing items.

There are now 42 Lapel High School juniors scheduled to travel to Europe in the fall of their senior school year, and this will be the 18th consecutive year for LHS seniors to participate in the 10-day adventure. All year, students have been working on fundraisers to help with trip expenses. The auction was this year’s final event. Total dollar amount raised this year from all events was $23,995.

The backing and support citizens of this small community give our students is incredible. So, once again, I would like to thank parents, community members, patrons, businesses and everyone else who has supported these activities. You have truly made a difference in the lives of these students by helping them participate in this amazing educational opportunity. Without your support, some students would have been unable to enjoy the benefits of the annual trip.

  • Letter: City beautification ignores other areas I read in the paper where they are going to start work on their great roundabout. What a waste, they are spending millions on the south side for the great gateway to Anderson and all the while the rest of Anderson is ignored.

  • Letter: Poll shows priorities are backward Your recent polling question about schools providing free food for children tells us society has its priorities backwards. The conservatives want low taxes. 53 percent said no to feeding the kids.

    I am a very upset grandparent. My grandson is being punished for having a bad language arts ISTEP score. Not only will they not let him take band, they have taken him out of the honors math that he was supposed to be in.

  • Letter: President's trade being swept under rug My question to all, why do we keep hearing after a number of months about the shootings in Colorado, Sandy Hook, etc., but yet the president illegally deals with terrorists, trades five for a believed deserter and now it is being swept under the rug?

  • Letter: Constitution, laws being trampled Nancy Pelosi said, "When it comes to protecting the children I'm a lioness!" Too bad that doesn't include the babies who are ripped from the womb. How ironic to hear the progressive liberals talk of compassion for illegals while killing our own.
