High school students from Central, Jackson, Notre Dame Regional, Saxony Lutheran and Scott City announced recently at an annual banquet that they had raised more than $15,303 and awarded $9,920 in Youth United Way grants. The money will go toward projects addressing teen pregnancy and substance-abuse prevention for youths.
The Youth United Way program is intended to make teens aware of community needs and encourage them to develop leadership skills and encourage them to volunteer. This is a great program. Congratulations to all of the young people involved.
