Junior High adds Interact program and sets service projects

The Star-Herald

Kosciusko Junior High School has recently added a new organization for its student body.  The Interact Club, sponsored by the Rotary Club, is comprised of 29 students who were chosen based on character and leadership qualities.  This group of junior high students will undertake two service projects in its first year.

The first project will be Christmas cards for the Attala County Nursing Home.  Before leaving for Christmas holidays, these students will hand deliver the cards to the nursing home residents.

The second project, which will take place in the spring, will be raising funds for the Catch-A-Dream Foundation.  This will be the 10th year for KSD to raise funds which provide dream trips for terminally ill children.  To date, over $117,000 has been raised with over 25 children receiving their dream trip.  To kick off the spring campaign, TempStaff from Canton, chose Catch-A-Dream as their SproutInitiative charity and decided to donate through KJHS efforts.
