This year’s student council is putting forth an effort to help the victims of the Hurricane Michael in Florida. Any kids or adults can participate in this school supply drive. We are collecting school supplies to help all those who lost everything to get back into learning. Shelly Morgan, a high school graduate from Waurika in 2001, lives in the impacted region in Florida and is helping to organize relief efforts. Her mom Lupe Edwards, an employee at WES, is going to drive all the supplies to Florida during the Thanksgiving break. The supplies that will be taken up there will be pencils, paper, crayons, notebooks, and other school supplies. They will try their best to help these kids back into their routine. The faster they start learning the happier and better they’ll be. Currently, students in the impacted area of Florida are having school in transportable pods to get them back to a classroom setting. Some of the members helping thrive this supply drive are student council members, Gatlin Black a senior, Landry Forsyth a sophomore, and Madison Roberson a senior. They say they are happy to help and want all the support and care for these kids. Anybody who wants to donate to this school supply drive is welcome to do so. See Magen Allen or Jessica Cornelison at Waurika High School. Students were asked to have supplies turned in by November 14th, but donations will be accepted until Friday, November 16th. The student council appreciates everyone who donates.
