Maddie Reeser(10), a fellow officer planned a For the Kids (FTK) dance last semester. “It was cool to finally see my vision come to life and see the kids having a good time,” said Maddie. The FTK dance was a huge success and one of the many fundraisers that happens throughout the year.
Also Rachel Herman(10) has been getting all the food organized for the big Mini-Thon event. “It is my first year as an officer and I have really loved getting to see how the event gets planned from the inside,” said Rachel. Mini-Thon is a good way to help kids and save lives.
