MMS - Meridian Student Council Leads and Gives Back
Members of the Meridian Student Council participate in many service projects impacting both local and world-wide initiatives. This year, donations were given to the Vernon Area Food Pantry and Orphans of the Storm. In support of the U.S. troops, the Council enlisted the assistance of Meridian Language Arts teachers in asking students to write letters to the troops. In addition, students, staff, and parents will be able to give through "We Care" stars (similar to the D102 Stars). Each star lists an item that will go into the "We Care Packages" being sent to the troops. Profits from the February Candy-gram sales ($800) will go toward buying additional items for the care packages. Thank you to Marsha Baldacci for sponsoring and supporting our students and their efforts.
