Winner High School Student Council will donate over $500 to the Children’s Miracle Network this spring as part of its Valentine’s Day Sweet Success promotion.
For one dollar, students and staff could send a Hersey bar to another student with a message or be left anonymous. Five hundred and nine Hershey bars were sold in one week.
Of special note, WHS faculty member Kathy Hagan presented the Student Council with a $100 check to purchase a bar for each of her study hall students on Valentine’s Day.
“Our council would like to thank business sponsors Winner Food Center and Winner Super Foods for donating five dozen Hershey bars and extend our appreciation to DB’s Bait and Tackle, Ampride, First Fidelity Bank, Wild West Gas, Lil Feller and Shopko for donating the rest,” said Chloe Bartels, Student Council President. “This entire school year, we’ve had all kinds of monetary and in-kind support from businesses and they’ve helped to make the year really fun for our entire high school and middle school.”
Winner High School Student Council also held a Sadie Hawkins Day dance and held a raffle for a dozen roses on Valentine’s Day. The flower bouquets were donated by Crazy Daisy Floral and Accent Florals.
The Children’s Miracle Network of Sioux Falls is a nonprofit organization that raises money for children’s hospital and medical research in South Dakota. The student council will present the donation at the State Student Council Convention in Rapid City this spring.
