GEHS STUCO has a running tradition of providing scholarships to current seniors on senior honors night. General most funds are raised through school dances. This year will look a little different. This is where STUCO is asking for your help. On Monday, November 16th STUCO is having a fundraiser sponsored by Chipotle. 33% of all sales will be donated to STUCO. The second way to help is to come #toGEther as a district and sell these Zoom University shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, etc. as a tribute to this school year so far! With your help STUCO will be able to continue their tradition while supporting some well deserving seniors.
