MHS students make donation to the American Red Cross

Tech students sell projects to raise money

June 16, 2015

Monticello High School's Design and Drawing for Production classes built birdhouses and planters, and completed custom projects to raise the money to cover their recent field trip to Basha Kill Wetlands. When all was said and done, their strong efforts resulted in an excess of $350, which they have donated to the American Red Cross.

"These students created every project, from start to finish. I'm very proud of the work they've done and of the decision they've made to donate the money to such a worthy cause," said MHS teacher Donald Waddell, who was responsible for the oversight of the students' projects.

Pictured above are some of the 9th and 10th grade students from Mr. Waddell's three Design and Drawing for Production classes who presented a check for $350 to Debora Bausenwein, a middle school teacher and advisor to the district's American Red Cross Club.
