FROM SHAY WARD ATCHISON
STANHOPE ELMORE HIGH SCHOOL
This year the Stanhope Elmore High School Jr Civitan led its annual campus-wide food drive for the WELCOME Center Food Pantry of Millbrook.
The organization was able to donate 2,448 items to the less fortunate in our community. A special shout out to Coach Stewart’s 1st block and the 1st block library and office aides for collecting over half of the items! Breakfast was sponsored by Jr Civitan in the morning for the winning classes!
