To the Editor-
If you believe in kids, kids can achieve great things!
As a student of Ben Franklin Jr. High school and a student of Mr. Greco’s World of Business class, I believe we made history. We organized a fundraising event at Lower Whiting Park for the Portage County K-9 unit.
During the event, we had a cookout, popped popcorn, hosted a fishing tournament, and set up many activities. An event which has never been done by a 9th grade class in the Stevens Point Area, especially on this large of a scale. It was a huge success! We raised nearly $5,700. Our class project was our “book”. However, this experience would not have been a success without the help of our community.
The K-9 unit was an important choice for us because it keeps people safe and we found out that one of the dogs was diagnosed with cancer. We wish Baco and his handler the best of luck. Our adventure was inevitable. Our success was possible by all the donors:
