Thanksgiving Food Drive a Huge Success

The Galena High School Student Council would like to send a big THANK YOU to all of the parents, faculty, community members, etc. that helped make our 2023 Thanksgiving Food Drive a huge success.  STUCO was able to put together 60 food baskets for families of our Galena students this year.  As part of the food drive, STUCO sponsored a competition between classes with the following classes coming out on top:

1st place - Ms. Jessica Shank's seminar - GHS - pizza party

2nd place - Mrs. Shawna Henson's 2nd grade class - Spring Grove - pizza party

3rd place - Ms. Katie Gipson's 5th grade class - Liberty - pop party

4th place - Mrs. Ashley Groves  seminar - GHS - pop party

5th place - Mrs. Lisa Simmons 2nd grade class - Spring Grove - candy bar party

6th place - Ms. Madison Kirch's seminar - GHS - candy bar party

A special thank you to GHS alumni, U.S. Representative Jacob LaTurner, for providing all of the turkeys to go along with our food baskets!!!

Thank you once again to everyone for their help with this project.  We wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!!!
