“Our homeroom had the idea to fill a bus,” said eighth grader Tyler Ladd. “Most of our classmates thought we could do it even though our teachers were a little nervous about such a big goal.”
Mroch said the event – which benefited Helping Hands of Trigg County – was organized by the eighth graders, with individual students having assigned roles for their homerooms. As they are the Class of 2018, their goal was to have 2,018 items delivered, but almost 4,100 items were delivered to the food bank, she said.
The students completed research, writing formal research papers about different topics related to hunger, and different homerooms were in charge of different parts of the drive, Mroch said.
