The Tyrone Middle School Council completed several community service projects this fall, including a fundraiser for Shriners Hospital, a Veterans Day holiday card project, and a fundraiser to benefit cancer patients.

“Student council is serving the community at large in so many ways. I couldn’t be more proud of the student’s efforts,” said Middle School Principal Shane Cowher.

Student Council sponsored a pop tab collection contest between the middle school advisory classes. Mrs. Whited’s class won the contest with a total of 256 pounds of pop tabs donated. The tabs were converted into $128 of donations to Shiners Hospitals.

“I like the pop tap collection because it was nice helping the people at the Shiners Hospital because it was fun competing with the other classes,” said MS Student Council Treasurer Karter Bokulich.

In honor of Veterans Day, the students wrote cards for US service members deployed overseas. According to middle school social studies teacher Jessica Hetrick, the students made and sent a total of 150 cards for members of the armed forces.

The student council also sponsored a Hat Day fundraiser to benefit cancer patients. Students were charged one dollar for wearing a hat to school. All the money raised went to the Heavenly Hats Foundation to purchase hats for chemo patients.

“My favorite thing was the hat day because it was fun and it was for a good cause so it was a win-win,” said eighth grader Jackson Conrad. “I feel like we’re very engaged with community projects.”

The middle school student council plans to help more nonprofit organizations throughout the year.
