Many come together to support students in transition

Thank you to everyone who supported the KCHS 2nd annual silent auction and spaghetti feed dinner sponsoring the Students in Transition Program

The Students in Transition Program helps local children and teens in the KPBSD stay in school, by providing things like transportation, school supplies, clothing, and hygiene products. All proceeds from this year’s event, roughly $9,000.00 went directly to the SIT program. The event was organized by the KCHS student leadership class with special recognition to Abby Beck for her efforts. The evening would not have been possible without Edie Handsaker and Marnie Jensen for preparing the delicious meal. We would also like to recognize Raymon Machen-Gray and Hunter Hanson for their musical performances throughout the dinner.

Congratulations to the following attendees and winners of silent auction items: Mel Galloway, Holly Behrens, Renee Bible, Julie English, Joyce Cox, Nicole Egholm, Mr. and Mrs. Duby, Scott Holmes, Julie Williams, Jodi and Roger Helvie, Jennifer Miranda, Wyatt White, Gayle Buben, Amy and Doug Baxter, Mary Bodner, Janelle Plumridge, Marnie Jensen, Victoria Trujillo, Margaret Gilman, and Katy Settlemyer
