BOW WOW AWARDS

In response to the tornado outbreak, Booker T. Washington’s Student Council Sponsor, Cathy Vernon, made a call to the PTSA and Student Council Presidents to request help in putting together a donation drive. Students, parents and community members met on December 30th to collect donations. The group was able to contribute $800 in gift cards, diapers, formula, pet food, work boots, gloves, and toiletries. In addition, the Josten’s representative provided boxes of hoodies, sweat pants and sweat shirts. Way to go Booker T. Washington!
