Student council advisers Pam Charish and Jennifer Bocklet said students raised the funds by requesting $1 donations from students and staff. Those who donated received student-made paper pumpkins featuring their names.

Chad Witsell, a community director with March of Dimes, which is a nonprofit organization that supports a healthier future for all babies, was on hand to accept the check donation and presented the student council with an honorary certificate.

Witsell thanked students for their generosity and encouraged them to remain benevolent and to serve as role models at their school.

Wonderful work BW!!! As a grandmother of premies, I have to say that I am sure that were not for the work of March of Dimes, they would not be here today. Thank you for your hard work.
