Laura Rice is the Student Body President at Vernonia High School this year. Rice is getting ready and organizing this year’s annual Presidential Challenge. Rice has chosen “Action Against Hunger” as the charity she is working for to raise funds during the week of April 7-12
Rice says she is planning games, having “meaningful color dress up days”, and selling snow cones and silicone bracelets at lunch as activities for students, teachers and staff during the school week.
On Friday (the 11th) she has organized “Vernonia’s Taking Action Against Hunger” with a bake sale and entertainment by a hypnotist, starting at 7:30 PM at the Vernonia School ($10.00 admission and a $35.00 family flat fee).
On Saturday (the 12th) Rice will host a community movie night, where they will be showing Disney’s “Frozen”. This will start at 6:00 PM with a $5.00 suggested donation. All ages are welcome. This also will be taking place at the school.
Rice has an online fundraising page where people can donate online, follow her progress, and view pictures of the events: http://my.actionagainsthunger.org/vhspresidentialchallenge
